Mark Glenshaw: Finding Owls in Your Neighborhood

Co-sponsored with Lake Cook Audubon

at Heller Nature Center 2821 Ridge Rd, Highland Park, IL 60035, 7 pm

Mark H.X. Glenshaw has spent nearly 20 years studying a family of Great Horned Owls in Forest Park, a large urban park in St. Louis, and shares his love of owls through lectures, owl prowls and more. In this program,  Glenshaw will explain how to find owls on your own – whether in a subdivision, city neighborhood, pocket park or large public park. He will discuss the three species of owl you are most likely to see or hear, how to look for them in a safe and ethical manner, how to spot them in trees as well as from the evidence they leave on the ground, what to listen for including both owl calls and the warning calls of other birds and animals, and the importance of research and collaboration.
