In the ancient forest, Bubo, a great horned owl, is the undisputed ruler—feared and despised
For a year, the birds and other creatures of the forest have lived in peace and freedom. Then one night, the great horned owl Bubo comes back to claim his territory, shattering their calm. No one is safe from the reach of the tiger-bird—not even Felis, the house cat.
Black Talon, another great horned owl, welcomes Bubo’s return. She has been waiting for a mate in order to start a family of her own. But in the wild, nothing can be taken for granted, and the other animals see the unhatched owlets as a chance for revenge. As Bubo and Black Talon try to defend their young against their enemies, the struggle for survival becomes an all-out battle.
