The Boreal Owl Murder by Jan Dunlap

The Boreal Owl
A Bob White Birder Murder Mystery


Birding in Minnesota gets a whole lot wilder when birder Bob White stumbles across a body while chasing the elusive Boreal Owl in the frozen north woods. Once he learns that the dead man is a world-renowned owl researcher, Bob suddenly finds himself in the middle of a murder investigation that not only jeopardizes his high school counseling job, but leads him on a hunt for both his nemesis bird and an unidentified killer. Relying on his birding buddies and his own extraordinary birding skills, Bob becomes a reluctant sleuth as he juggles death threats, drama queens, a scary accountant, his bossy sister, and his gorgeous girlfriend… not to mention bullets and speeding tickets! Birding will never be the same again…
