Award-winning photographer Paul Bannick examines the intertwined life histories of owls and woodpeckers and the unique roles they play in defining and enriching their often-threatened habitats. An exhibit of his photos, housed in Western Libraries' Special Collections space on the sixth floor of the Wilson Library, will be open for viewing through Dec. 31 during regular Special Collections hours (closed on weekends and on major holidays).

"The Owl & the Woodpecker in Washington" exhibit was organized by the Burke Museum at the University of Washington and created with Paul Bannick and Braided River, a partner of The Mountaineers Books. Sponsorship of the local presentation of The Owl & the Woodpecker in Washington is provided by Western Libraries.
