Hush…. did you hear that? Was that an owl calling in the night? Let’s find out, which creatures are active at night. The event will start at the Nature Center at Shad Landing (Pocomoke River State Park) where we will learn about owl senses, behavior, and local owl species. Then we will go for a walk and try to attract wild owls by playing owl recordings. Lastly, we can warm up with hot chocolate back at the Nature Center. Please wear warm clothes and sturdy shoes, and bring a flashlight.

Eastern Screech Owls are small owls common in woods, suburbs, and parks. They usually nest in a natural tree cavity or a woodpecker nest hole. Eastern Screech Owls readily accept nest boxes, including those built for Wood Ducks or Purple Martins, and sometimes nest in wood piles, mailboxes, or crates left on the ground. Come and build your own Screech Owl nest box for you to take home and create owl habitat in your own yard. Please bring a mask and a Phillips screwdriver if you have one.
