Abstract:

The story of an odd couple: a British military historian and the Tawny Owl with whom he lived for fifteen years. Adorable but with knife-sharp talons, Mumble became Windrow's closest, if at times unpredictable, companion, first in a South London flat and later in the more owl-friendly Sussex countryside. Windrow recalls with wry humor their finer moments as well as the reactions of incredulous neighbors, the awkwardness of buying Mumble unskinned rabbit at Harrods Food Hall... and an unexpected education in the paleontology, zoology, and sociology of owls.
