Because of a change in the Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center's winter hours, we will be meeting the first Saturday of the month through March. Registration for these gatherings is encouraged, but not required. Feel free to drop by--and it would be great to know that you are coming!
Last month we visit from a Snowy Owl. These owls typically hunt small mammals in open grassland--but the songbirds in the forest reacted strongly around the time the owl flew by. Were the birds reacting to the owl? Was the owl drawn in by the birds alarms? Who else is prowling around these woods this winter? Come join us at the Refuge as we listen for more clues and learn what the birds are telling us about their home.
