Owls have been mythic heralds, ancient hunters, and have struck a balance in the animal kingdom between a reputation of fable and fact. Miriam Darlington, bird-watching aficionado and expect owl finder, has made it her mission in her new book Owl Sense to capture the entwined truth and tale about these iconic birds. With one clawed foot in the barns and trees of the world we know, owls have always had the other talon upon the shoulder of ancient goddesses, carrying brooms to young wizards, or watching fairytales unfold from high boughs.
How did owls come to loom so large in our lives, and the ecosystems around them? Owl Sense is the book that asks and answers what sets them apart and what makes them special; from their prowess as birds of prey, to their legendary repute, to the magnificence of the creatures close up. At this year’s BridLit Miriam will be giving an illustrated talk, introduced by James Crowden, sharing her wisdom and passion for these brilliant birds in a celebration of the animal world and life on Earth. It will be enchanting and memorable, just like the birds.
