Owls are arguably the most exciting group of birds to learn about because of their nocturnal habits and amazing predatory adaptations. The diversity in owl species increases during the winter months in Massachusetts so now is a perfect time to learn about these fascinating birds. Tonight's presentation will focus on three species: the Snowy Owl, Short-eared Owl, and Long-eared Owl. These owls primarily breed in Canada and it's only during the winter months we have a chance to see them, usually by coast marshes. Join us to learn about these 'marsh owls' and what's being done to help support these ambassadors of bird conservation.
