A-An Evening for Night Owls

About This Activity

Every autumn a small northwoods owl called the Saw-whet migrates south in a silent and secretive wave. The staff at Quarry Hill is among a small group of folks trying to capture and band these birds in the eastern U.S. in effort to better understand their migration. During this evening, you'll enjoy a snack and beverage while learning more about the secretive Saw-whet owl and Quarry Hill's research. Then we'll travel in the Quarry Hill Critter Coach a few minutes east of town to visit the owl banding site. After a 10 minute hike to the study site, we will check the nets and band any captured owls. Quarry Hill Nature Center, 701 Silver Creek RD NE Instructors: Quarry Hill Staff
