Calling all night owls! Friends of Blue Heron Park will be hosting a series of evening walks to try to spot an owl or two.
Cliff Hagen, experienced bird-watcher and intermediate school teacher, will be leading the walks through Blue Heron Park, beginning Sunday, January 25th. The trips are planned for 6:30pm-8pm, so as not to interfere with next-morning plans, yet late enough for the sun to have fallen. Hagen will be calling Eastern screech-owls in hopes that, whether territorial or just curious, he'll get an answer.
This should be a unique experience for bird-watchers and lovers of the outdoors. Taking a night walk forces your other four senses to become sharper when sight is limited.
The walks are scheduled for February 8th and 22nd, and March 8th and 22nd. You don't need to bring a flashlight, but you can if you'd like! For more information, go to the Blue Heron Park website.
