Winter Owl Prowl in Addison County

December 7, 2019 @ 3:00 PM - 9:00 PM


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 Teacher-Naturalist Zac Cota.

Carpool departing from NBNC at 3:00 pm, 3:45 in Williston, or 4:30 in Addison. Carpooling will be arranged by NBNC.

$25 for NBNC members, $30 for non-members.

Limited to 16 participants.
Minimum age: 14 (10+ with parent)
