Bannick uses intimate yet dramatic images to follow owls through the course of one year and in their distinct habitats in some of the most remote parts of the continent. Audiences will witness the four seasons on territory, as each stage in an owl’s life is chronicled through rare images: courtship, mating, and nesting in spring; fledging and feeding of young in summer; dispersal and gaining independence in fall; and, finally, winter’s migrations and competitions for food. His program shows how owls use the unique resources available to them in each habitat to face those challenges. All 19 species found in Canada and the United States are featured in photos, video, and narrative throughout the book, with a special focus on the Northern Pygmy-Owl, Great Gray Owl, Burrowing Owl, and Snowy Owl. “Owl” is a stunning follow-up to his bestselling title, “The Owl and the Woodpecker.” This will be the first time this presentation has been given in the Spokane area. The presentation is part of the Spokane Great Outdoors & Bike Expo happening all weekend long February 18-19, 2017 at the Spokane Convention Center. Bannick’s presentation and book signing runs from 1:30-2:30 p.m. on Sunday, February 19,  and is free with the purchase of a ticket to the Spokane Great Outdoors & Bike Expo ($8 online or $10 at the door).
