About Iain R. Taylor

After studying foraging ecology of terns and skuas for his doctorate at the University of Aberdeen, Dr Taylor worked for three years at the University of Ghana, West Afria. His main interest there was the ecology of rain-forest birds but it was also there that his enthusiasm for barn owls started after discovering a flock of sixteen of them feeding on termites one night.show more
