Weir Preserve and Weir Farm National Historic Site Owl Prowl

10/13/2017

735 Nod Hill Road, Ridgefield, CT

Weir Preserve of the Weir Farm Art Center and Weir Farm National Historic Site will host their annual Halloween Owl Prowl on Friday evening, October 13, from 7:30 to 9:00 pm. "Owlers" will gather at Weir Farm National Historic Site for a presentation by Frank Gallo on owls that live in this area, followed by a hike into the neighboring Weir Preserve where Frank will attempt to call in screech owls, barred owls and great horned owls. As an expert birder and veteran of bird walks in Weir Preserve, he has had much success with past Owl Prowl events. In earlier prowls, all three local owl species have responded to Frank's calls and on numerous occasions, participants have spotted owls. Using slides and props, Frank begins the evening with a review of the unique characteristics of these birds-talons, feathering, hearing, vision-that make owls such effective raptors of the night. He will also discuss some of the mythology that has evolved around owls. Following his presentation, the group will proceed to nearby fields and listen closely as Frank calls into the woodlands. It is recommended that participants dress for the outdoors and bring a flashlight.
