The Hidden Lives of Owls

Leigh Calvez

Naturalist Leigh Calvez holding a pygmy owl

Please join us on Tuesday, October 22 at 7:00 pm for a presentation by Leigh Calvez, author of the New York Times bestselling book The Hidden Lives of Owls: The Science and Spirit of Nature’s Most Elusive Birds. Leigh pursues eleven different owl species—including the Barred, Flammulated, Northern Saw-Whet, Northern Pygmy, Northern Spotted, Burrowing, Snowy, and Great Gray. She 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.

The Hidden Lives of Owls book cover

Leigh studied humpback whales in Massachusetts and on Maui, along with spinner dolphins on the Big Island of Hawaii. Her interest in the natural world led her to nature writing. Leigh’s work has been published in American Nature Writing: 2003 by Fulcrum Books and in an anthology 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, the Seattle Times, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, and Bainbridge Island Magazine. Second book, The Breath of a Whale, was also published by Sasquatch books in February, 2019.
