In this podcast, Paul talks with BCB host Channie Peters about how he was able to observe, study and photograph all 19 species of North American owls throughout the course of a year in each of their different natural habitats.
He explains the importance of understanding these indicator species as a way of comprehending our bigger environment and our interconnected web of existence.
