Screech Owl

Tidewater mucket shellsOwl Prowls (2 dates)

Trips meet at Stop and Shop parking lot in Middletown at 7:00 p.m., and caravan through Middletown, ending in Middlefield. Dress warmly, bring a flashlight, and have gas in your car, or carpool—no gas stations along the route. If we are lucky we can hear screech owls answering our calls—and we may possibly see one or two—and maybe some other larger species, such as a Great Horned.
Please put Owl Prowl in subject line of emails. <joseph.mor@sbcglobal.net> 635-2786
