Book Review: 'The Owl Who Liked Sitting on Caesar' by Martin Windrow
Getting Started. It appeared to be wearing a one-piece knitted jumpsuit of pale grey fluff with brown stitching, complete with an attached balaclava helmet. From the face-hole of the fuzzy balaclava, two big, shiny black eyes gazed up at me trustfully. Kweep , it said quietly.

When author Martin Windrow met the tawny owlet that he christened Mumble, it was love at first sight. Raising her from a fledgling, through adolescence and into her prime years, Windrow recorded every detail of their time living together secretly in a south London tower block, and later in a Sussex village.
This is the touching, intriguing and eccentric story of their year relationship, complete with photographs and illustrations of the beautiful Mumble. Along the way, we are given fascinating insight into the ornithology of owls — from their evolution and biology to their breeding habits and hunting tactics. The Owl Who Liked Sitting on Caesar is a witty, quirky and utterly charming account of the companionship between one man and his owl.
The Owl Who Liked Sitting on Caesar
Needing a companion after a sky diving accident, the author first tried a little owl; however, this bird escaped, so he tried a tawny owl. Right from the start, Mumble, as Windrow called his female tawny, proved to be the perfect friend. Using notes and photographs from their time together, the author intertwines anecdotes of living in a small apartment with a bird the size of a loaf of bread with the evolution, zoology and social life of owls, providing readers with lots of information not normally found outside of bird identification books.
One favorite experience Windrow remembers fondly is how Mumble loved to snuggle into his neck after his shower.
She loved it when I rubbed the close triangle of short feathers immediately above her beak and between her eyes. There was a problem adding your email address. Please try again. Be the first to discover new talent!
