Publisher's Summary

Borden Watson goes to the giant redwood forest for one reason: to shoot spotted owls. They are the reason his dad has lost his job as a logger, and Borden hates them. But when he comes across a baby owl that has fallen out of its nest, Borden can’t resist the tiny, elflike creature. And luckily this owlet doesn’t have spots, so it must be a barred owl - not the enemy. Borden takes the little owl home and names it Bardy. Before long Bardy wins over each member of Borden’s owl-hating family. Even his father pitches in to take care of the hungry owlet. But what will happen when they find out that Bardy is really a spotted owl?

Award-winning nature writer Jean Craighead George weaves valuable ecological information into this heartwarming story of a family’s love affair with a very special little owl. Young listeners will be fascinated as they learn about owls and their endangered forest habitat.
