Owl Tales offered on March 4

By Staff | Feb 27, 2009

The nesting season for Great Horned, Barn and Screech Owls of the islands has begun. The Great Horned Owl does not make its’ own nest but uses one built by an osprey, hawk or eagle. The Screech and Barn Owls nest in tree cavities made by woodpeckers or nest boxes. Island Screech owls are in the courting phase with males guarding territory and calling to females.

On Wednesday, March 4 at 10 a.m., all are invited to the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF) to learn more about the owls of Sanibel and Captiva. Call 472-2329 for more information about the Owl Tales program.
