Audubon Society yearly owl field trip is a hoot
Everyone seems to give a hoot about owls.
Sunday, the Grand Valley Audubon Society will let you give a hoot for owls.
One of the Audubon Society’s most-popular birding trip is the annual Owl Prowl Field Trip, an afternoon adventure chasing down the five species of owls nesting in the Grand Valley.
Participants will visit known nesting sites to scope out western screech owls, great horned owls, barn owls, long-eared owls and burrowing owls (the last one might be the most challenging).
After dinner and weather permitting, a party will head up slope to call and locate montane owls on either Grand Mesa or the Uncompahgre Plateau.
Birders of all experience levels are welcome.
A $5 fee will be charged to help defray expenses.
WHAT: The Owl Prowl Field Trip, sponsored by the Grand Valley Audubon Society.
WHEN: Sunday, 1 p.m.
WHERE: Meet at the Dinosaur Journey parking lot in Fruita just south of Interstate 70.
