Find Out About Owls at Lower Branch Library – 7 p.m. Monday, March 23rd 2009

How do you find an owl? Learn how to look for them at a two-part presentation on owls given by Don Freiday, Director of Birding Programs for the New Jersey Audubon Society’s Cape May Bird Observatory. The lecture is at 7 p.m. on Monday, March 23rd at the Lower Cape Branch Library located at 2600 Bayshore Road in the Villas.

Consider finding an owl a matter of hide and seek, in part because they are so seldom seen. Learn about the ecology and behavior of the eight species of owls found in the Eastern United States and afterwards join a short, optional, nighttime excursion to the Villas Wildlife Management Area to try and see one!

Don Freiday is a graduate of Rutgers University where he went on to teach undergraduate student Wildlife Ecology. He is the regional coordinator for the New Jersey Breeding Bird Atlas, a member of the New Jersey Bird Records Committee and on the executive board of the New Jersey Chapter of the Wildlife Society. Additionally, Freiday is the co-author of two books: “A Precious Place, a Naturalist Explores New Jersey” and “Wild Journeys: Migration in New Jersey.”
