Winter owls that specialize in open landscape hunting come alive during the twilight hours at Massachusetts salt marshes. The diversity of owl species in Massachusetts increases during the winter months so now is also the perfect time to learn about these fascinating flyers. This online presentation will focus on three species: 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.
