SoFo Adults Full Moon Owl Prowl


7:30 – 9 p.m.
January 25, 2013

Walk leader Joe Giunta is one of SoFo’s most engaging birding teachers, and this foray is one of his most enjoyable. The evening starts with a brief slideshow and taped calls to acquaint you with the East End‘s native owls. Then Joe will take you into the woods to call owls in for actual sightings. There is a good possibility that you will see an Eastern Screech Owl and maybe even a Great Horned Owl, whose courtship period begins at this time of year. This walk is for adults, but children over the age of 12 may attend. Bring binoculars and a flashlight. Limited enrollment, reserve now.

Please call 631-537-9735 for reservations and information about meeting places. Directions and meeting places announced after registration. Reservations are required for all events.
