Wesley the Owl by Stacey O'Brien ISBN 13: 9781416551775

ISBN 10: 1416551778

Paperback; New York: Atria Books, 2009-06-02; ISBN-13: 978-1416551775

On ValentineâÈçs Day 1985, biologist Stacey OâÈçBrien adopted Wesley, a baby barn owl with an injured wing who could not have survived in the wild. Over the next nineteen years, OâÈçBrien studied WesleyâÈçs strange habits with both a tender heart and a scientistâÈçs eyeâÈ'and provided a mice-only diet that required her to buy the rodents in bulk (28,000 over the owlâÈçs lifetime). She watched him turn from a helpless fluff ball into an avid com­municator with whom she developed a language all their own. Eventually he became a gorgeous, gold-and-white macho adult with a heart-shaped face who preened in the mir­ror and objected to visits by any other males to âÈêhisâÈë house. OâÈçBrien also brings us inside CaltechâÈçs prestigious research community, a kind of scientific Hogwarts where resident owls sometimes flew freely from office to office and eccentric, brilliant scientists were extraordinarily committed to studying and helping animals; all of them were changed by the animals they loved. As OâÈçBrien gets close to Wesley, she makes astonishing discoveries about owl behavior, intelligence, and communication, coining the term âÈêThe Way of the OwlâÈë to describe his noble behavior. When OâÈçBrien develops her own life-threatening ill­ness, the biologist who saved the life of a helpless baby bird is herself rescued from death by the insistent love and courage of this wild animal. Enhanced by wonderful photographs, Wesley the Owl is a thoroughly engaging, heart­warming, often funny story of a complex, emotional, non-human being capable of reason, play, and, most important, love and loyalty. Translated into eight languages and named an Audubon Magazine EditorâÈçs Choice, Wesley the Owl is sure to be cherished by animal lovers everywhere.
