Saw Whet Owl

Thursday, October 6, 7 PM

Join us for an in-depth look at the natural history of the Northeast’s smallest owl species, the Northern Saw-whet Owl. A New Hampshire resident, this elusive species often avoids detection due to its small size and nocturnal habits. Kathy Seymour a Mass Audubon birding trip leader and owl bander before relocating to the MWV, will share her observations from 15 years banding Saw-whet owls.
