Prey Tell: An Anthology of Poems about Birds of Prey


Still looking for a gift for someone on your holiday shopping list? How about a book of poems inspired by birds of prey?

Owl Moon Raptor Center is excited to present Prey Tell: An Anthology of Poems About Birds of Prey. This summer we collaborated with poet and editor Julie A. Dickson to produce a collection of poems about owls, hawks, falcons, and eagles. The book features new and previously published works by over 100 US and international poets.

Jane Yolen, acclaimed author of the award-winning children’s book Owl Moon, wrote the foreword to the anthology together with her daughter, Heidi Stemple. The collection includes three original poems by Jane Yolen, two of which are published here for the first time.

We are delighted to offer this dynamic and inspired collection of poems as your thank you gift when you donate $45 dollars or more to Owl Moon Raptor Center. It will make a great gift for your nature-loving friends and family, or wonderful addition to your own library! As always, all donations are tax deductible and 100 percent of proceeds go towards supporting the care of orphaned and injured birds of prey.

    It was an honor to work with Suzanne and Natasha on this anthology, a completely non-profit fundraiser for the Owl Moon Raptor Center!

    Poems by Kate Leigh [Poet Laureate of Portsmouth, NH], Koon Woon [Editor of Five Willows Literary Review], many poet contributors from The Avocet Nature Poetry Review, and a short true account by Singer/ Song Writer Rex Fowler of Aztec-Two Step. Contributing poets hail from all over the United States, Canada, Ireland, England, Trinidad and India.

    Please support Owl Moon Raptor Center and Suzanne’s wonderful work with birds of prey!

    What a wonderful title! Also, what a fine video of the hawk being released after rehab. Must be such a gratifying feeling to be part of that. I hope this book goes out to the whole world.
