The Owl & the Woodpecker in Washington: Photographs by Paul Bannick

Award winning photographer, author, conservationist, and Washington resident Paul Bannick examines the intertwined life histories of owls and woodpeckers and the unique roles they have played in defining and enriching their often-threatened habitats.

Based on Bannick's book The Owl and the Woodpecker, the exhibit features 15 extraordinary photographic prints of owl and woodpecker species found in the Pacific Northwest, together with engaging text panels, and vivid birdcalls and drumming sound recordings by audio-naturalist Martyn Stewart.

The Owl & the Woodpecker in Washington: Photographs by Paul Bannick was organized by the Burke Museum, University of Washington, created with Paul Bannick and Braided River, a partner of The Mountaineers Books.

Book available for purchase: A full-color, 200-page companion book by Paul Bannick, which includes an audio CD of owl and woodpecker calls and drumming recorded by Martyn Stewart is available for purchase from The Mountaineers Books.
