Live owl program @ Heritage Museums & Gardens

When: Mon Apr 21st
10:30 am - 11:30 am

Where: 67 Grove Street

Who’s watching you? Find out  when “Eyes On Owls” presents a live owl program. Naturalist Marcia Wilson will lead this fun and interactive program with educational close-up views of these secretive birds of prey.
In “Who’s Watching You? Owls of the World,” Ms. Wilson introduces the audience to owls found in New England as well other parts of the world beginning with a slide show, showcasing colorful wildlife photos compiled by her husband, Mark Wilson. Then the hooting begins! Ms. Wilson imitates the owls’ calls herself, paying special attention to the more common owls that we might encounter in our area.
After a hooting lesson and much audience anticipation, Ms. Wilson will bring out the live owls one at a time. There is plenty of time for close-up views, photos, and questions.
Each owl presented has a permanent disability which prevents it from surviving on its own in the wild. These non-releasable owls serve as helpful ambassadors from the world of wildlife.
Which owl eats skunks? Can a little detective work reveal where owls live near you? What do pellets tell us about an owl’s diet, the food chain, and the web of life? How can we protect owls and their habitats? These questions and more will be answered during the program.
