Owl Moon Showcased Three Local Owl Species

24 Sep 2017 4:48 PM | Thomas Blackburn (Administrator)




Sixty-five people turned out for the Friends of Mason Neck State Park's Owl Moon event on September 23.  Two speakers from Secret Garden: Birds and Bees briefed the audience on a typical year in the life of Screech Owls, Barred Owls, Barn Owls and Great Horned Owls.  They also brought with them a Barred Owl, a Barn Owl and a Great Horned Owl for the audience to see and photograph.  


Everyone enjoyed the program and the opportunity to view these seldom-seen birds up close.  But the highlight of the evening was watching the Great Horned Owl seize and devour a mouse.
