Hidden Lives of Owls with the Vancouver Audubon Society
Please join us on Tuesday for a presentation of The Hidden Lives of Owls! Naturalist Leigh Calvez pursues eleven different owl species—including the Barred, Flammulated, Northern Saw-Whet, Northern Pygmy, Northern Spotted, Burrowing, Snowy, and Great Gray. Leigh makes the science entertaining and accessible through the stories of the people who study these birds in the wild and her own avian adventures in the field.
Leigh Calvez is the author of the New York Times bestselling book The Hidden Lives of Owls: The Science and Spirit of Nature’s Most Elusive Birds. Leigh stud-ied humpback whales in Massachusetts and on Maui, along with spinner dol-phins on the Big Island of Hawaii. Her interest in the natural world led her to nature writing. Leigh’s work has been published in Ameri-can Nature Writing: 2003 by Fulcrum Books and in an an-thology for Sierra Club Books entitled Between Species: Celebrating the Dolphin-Human Bond. She has also written articles and essays that have been published in the Smithsonian Magazine, High Country News, Ecologist, Ocean Realm, the Christian Science Monitor, Seattle Times, Seattle Post-Intelligencer, and Bainbridge Island Magazine. Leigh’s second book, The Breath of a Whale, was also published by Sasquatch books in February 2019.
