Gerald Malle and Remo Probst have recently published a German book about the ecology and conservation of the Eurasian Scops Owl with a focus on Austria and Carinthia (a federal state in the south of Austria at the Slovenian and Italian border).
This is the most comprehensive book currently available on the species. Before that book, Remo Probst had already written or edited several other fantastic books on the Eurasian Hobby, White-tailed Eagle and Great Grey Shrike. This book is a must for anyone interested in the Eurasian Scops Owl in particular as well as owls in general.
