One such photo of a saw-whet owl in mid-attack on a mouse is displayed at frontis. With several other black & white and color photos, showing both the author's elaborate blinds, as well as the final product of photos of such species as flickers, hawks, hummingbirds, bluebirds, and some mammal species. --- In brown cloth-covered boards with image of bluebird in black to cover. --- A clean, tightly-bound, well-preserved copy but with prior owner's boldly printed name to rear paste-down and soiled corner of back cover.; Octavo - 8 to 9 in. tall; 144 pages
