TH20 Nighttime Owls 2 | 2019 | $15
Time - 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Trip Leader(s): Mario Balitbit
If you have never gone “owling” this is a great chance to see what is involved. Sandra is an experienced “owler” and can demonstrate various calling techniques. A short slideshow will introduce some of the common owl species of Humboldt County. Help scout potential locations through the Arcata Bottoms looking for Barn Owl and Short-eared Owl, then visit various locations using tapes or voice calling to elicit responses from the nighttime forest owls, including Barred Owl as they become more common in the area. This trip will be cancelled by rain. Requires good luck, a flashlight and warm clothes. Expect variable terrain and possibly wet ground. There may be an opportunity to use a spotting scope until dark. Restrooms will not be available once the trip leaves the Community Center.
