Winter is a great time to look for owls. You might think it’s just too cold, but you don’t have to go hiking in the snow. In fact, you don’t have to leave the comfort of your home.
This time of year, owl-watching can be as simple as taking a look outside through your kitchen window. All you need to know is when and where to look. 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 will show you how to identify local owls 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.
Bring your questions about owl – Hughes will have the answers.
