Join the Friends for a special evening of owl viewing/listening on Ladd Marsh this Friday, March 3. Mike Mahoney will lead the trip, leaving Ladd Marsh Headquarters at 59116 Pierce Road at 7:00 pm. Several owl species can often be heard at night on the marsh, including Great horned, Barn, Western screech, and Long-eared.
Current NOAA forecast is for a chance of showers and low of 36 degrees F. Be sure you are dressed warmly enough to remain comfortable while standing in the cold for periods of time while listening for owl calls. Warm footwear is highly recommended. Participants also might wish to bring a headlamp or flashlight. A headlamp with a red light setting is ideal, to avoid blinding other birders.
