Owl Prowl with Eyes on Owls at Farrington Nature Linc
We will run two rotations of our program- one group will meet and greet with live owls followed by an Owl Prowl on our property and the second group will start with an Owl Prowl and then engage with the live owls. Naturalist Marcia Wilson,of Eyes on Owls, will introduce the audience to owls found in New England and as well other parts of the world. A slide show begins the program by showcasing colorful wildlife photos by her husband Mark Wilson. Marcia 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, Marcia brings out the live owls one at a time. With each owl perched securely on her gloved hand, she walks out among the audience with six or seven owls. There’s plenty of time for close-up views, photos and questions. Each owl presented has a permanent disability which prevents him or her from surviving on their own in the wild. These non-releasable owls serve as captivating ambassadors from the world of wildlife. All the owls are legally permitted by state and federal agencies for use in environmental educational programs. Then we will head outside for a guided walk around Farrington's property where will we do some "owling" (learning about owl calls and keeping our eyes out for owls).
