BioU: Vermont Owls – Field Trip to Addison County
December 8, 2018 @ 3:00 PM - 9:00 PM$25 – $30
Owls are among our most beloved yet seldom seen birds. Of the seven owl species that we regularly encounter in Vermont, the migratory Short-eared Owl is one of the most sought after by birders. Early winter is a great time to search for Short-eared Owls when they can be found hunting over large open fields at dusk. We will travel to Addison County to view hunting Short-eared owls. Afterwards we will visit nearby spots in search of Northern Saw-whet, Eastern Screech, Long-eared, Barred, and Great Horned Owls. Led by expert birder and NBNC’s AmeriCorps naturalist Zac Cota.
$25 for NBNC members, $30 for non-members.
Limited to 16 participants.
Carpool departing from NBNC at 2:45 pm at NBNC, 3:30 in Williston, or 4:30 in Addison. Carpooling will be arranged by NBNC.
