Indoor Program – Larry Fischer: Owls of Western Connecticut

January 14, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Currently on the Northeast Hawk Watch Board of Directors, Larry is a federally licensed raptor bander who has been banding hawks, falcons, owls, and eagles for more than 30 years, working independently as well as with the CT DEEP and the U.S. Dept. of the Interior. Tonight he talks about owls, those endlessly fascinating birds, and specifically about the owl species found in CT west of the CT River. This program, illustrated with appealing slides of owls and owlets, focuses primarily on the species that breed in our backyards and back woodlots. Larry will talk about how common or how rare each species is and what their habitat requirements are. He’ll also discuss nest site selection and how to encourage some species to nest where they might be easily and safely observed with all-important care taken not to disturb the birds.  Larry will also talk about the species of owls that are seen only in winter. You’ll walk away from the meeting armed with tips he’ll share on improving your owl identification skills.
