Tree Mob: New Year, New Nest

Walk through the Arboretum in winter and you may hear a mating pair of great horned owls calling to one another as they prepare for nesting season. Brendan Keegan will describe the nesting habits of great horned owls and provide best practices for ethically observing these seldom seen raptors. 

Whoooo cares about New Year’s Eve when every evening in December and January is cause for celebration? Walk through the Arboretum during these winter months and you may hear a mating pair of great horned owls (Bubo virginianus) calling to one another as they prepare for nesting season. Will they use last year’s nest? Find a nook in a dead tree? Or repurpose a red-tailed hawk nest? Brendan Keegan will share a Powerpoint on the nesting habits of great horned owls as well as provide best practices for ethically observing these seldom seen raptors. Join via Zoom on January 13 at 3:00pm.
