Crookston Library and Agassiz Audubon Society to Present How to Spot and Photograph Owls Program

The Crookston Library and Agassiz Audubon Society will present How to Spot and Photograph Owls, a program free for the public, on Tuesday, February 11 at 6 p.m. at the Crookston Library.

Winter is a great time to look for owls.  Several species, including  Snowy Owls, Northern Hawk-owls and Great Horned Owls, have been spotted in the Red River Valley this winter.

All you need to know is when, where and what to look for.  If you’re willing to be adventurous, you can drive around and spot them from the comfort of your car, or participate in a guided field trip.

Agassiz Audubon Society’s Heidi Hughes has been watching owls for years.  She’ll show you the local owls and how to identify them – and provide the owling “basics.”  She’ll provide tips on how to make your yard “owl friendly,” how to select owl identification books and apps – and how to take a good owl photo with a point and shoot camera.

For more information on this program, contact Dennis Jacobs at the Crookston Library (218) 281-4522.
