October 21st Owl Prowl and...Mushroon Season!
A happy follow-up to my previous post: both of the Seward Park barred owls are alive and well! The dead owl that I reported to you earlier was obviously a vagrant, probably juvenile, that was looking to find its own territory. What caused its demise is unclear...it may have even been attacked and killed by our resident barred owls! In any case both barred and barn owls are very active in Seward Park so please join me on Thursday, October 21st and we'll go out prowling for these incredible birds. As always, email me to register. Additionally, October is mushroom time and I am offering several Mushroom Walks through Seward Park Audubon Center. The dates are listed on our website: sewardpark.audubon.org under "events". Hope to see you soon!
