A program for owl and bird enthusiasts
Everyone loves owls! Yet, how often do you get to see an owl up close? Perhaps you’ve glimpsed the shadowy form of a Great-horned Owl in the beam of your headlights as you traveled a back road at night. Have you ever scanned a frozen saltmarsh or hayfield in winter, hoping to find that arctic hunter, the Snowy Owl? How about that mob of noisy crows circling a white pine tree? Have they found an owl? Join teacher/naturalist Marcia Wilson and author/photographer/naturalist Mark Wilson in sharing their passion for owls.

In this program, Mark and Marcia Wilson will introduce you to the owls of New England and beyond. The Wilsons will share the field marks, signs, and naturalist’s skills that you can use to find wild owls without disturbing them.

Meet the owls
Attendees will actually get to meet six live owls (from small to huge) up close! The Wilsons will lead the group in a hooting lesson, and will share tips on how to attract and protect owls near you. We’re not sure which owls will be present, but chances are you’ll meet New England’s tiniest owl, the Northern Saw-Whet Owl (weighing in at 4 ounces) along with the world’s largest owl, the Eurasian Eagle Owl (check out that five foot wingspan!). Other species that figure prominently in the Wilson’s program can include Eastern Screech Owl, Barred Owl, Barn Owl, Great-horned Owl, Snowy Owl and Spectacled Owl. Owl pellets and white wash are topics of great interest and the Wilsons will spend time dissecting these fascinating aspects of owl biology. For many middle and elementary schools, this ties directly to the science curriculum of the students. Explore owls on the Wilson’s website.
