Summary by: Stephen Klein

Pages 37 and 38 in "The Book Of North American Owls" tells about how we are trying to protect owls from dangerous things. Congress passed laws making it illegal to kill owls. Also DDT has been banned in the United States. DDT makes the shells of birds eggs very thin and breakable like ice. The most important way to help owls is educate people about owls. In conclusion,pages 37 and 38 tells many things about how owls are dying ,and how we are trying to protect them.

SUMMARY BY: MIKHAIL PEIFFER

The first two pages of chapter 5, in the book of North American Owls, written by Helen Roney Sattler, explains how long owls live and what causes owl deaths, while telling us lots of facts along the way. It told us that the oldest living owl known by humans was an African Eagle Owl, at the age of 68 years old! Also, 96% of dead Great Horned Owl adults were killed by humans. In the mid-west owls die from eating rodents that have been fed with wheat treated with Dieldrin, an insectide related to DDT. Did you know that greatest natural enemy is the Goshawk. That sums up this summary paragraph.
