Owl Moon Prowl

Inside, we’ll look at mounted specimens and natural history artifacts to discover how this bird has adapted to its nocturnal lifestyle. We’ll also listen to the different types of owl sounds that can be heard in this part of New Hampshire, and learn the Barred Owl’s distinctive, “Who cooks for you?” call. Then, we’ll venture outside onto the Harris Center grounds in hopes of hearing a courting barred owl in real life.

Friday, March 6, from 7 to 8 p.m. at the Harris Center. For more information, contact Susie Spikol Faber at spikol@harriscenter.org.
