TH19 Nighttime Owls 2 | 2020 | $15
Time - 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Trip Leader(s): Mario Balitbit
This event will meet at the Arcata Community Center, outside the front doors. Festival headquarters will not be set up there quite yet so just look for others with binoculars.
If you have never gone “owling” this is a great chance to see what is involved. 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 usually hears at least one species of owl, sometimes several, and may get a lucky visual encounter. 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 may not not be available once the trip leaves the Community Center.
