Winter is the perfect time to hear great horned owls “Whooing!”
2018 Dates COMING SOON!
Did you know that Great Horned Owls are the first birds to nest in Michigan? January and February mark the peak of their mating season, and they keep on “whooing” well into March; the time of year that these mysterious birds make themselves known to each other by calling for mates and defining their territory. By late February/early March, mating pairs will be incubating a clutch of one to four eggs.
The program begins with a live show featuring owls from Wild Wonders Wildlife Park. Then we’ll take a walk in into the woods to call to Great Horned and Screech Owls and listen for their replies. The evening finishes with hot chocolate and cookies for all participants.
