Everyone enjoys seeing owls, and hearing hoots in the night can bring a bit of warmth to the chill of darkness. But enjoying an owl, by sight or sound, does not equate to knowing about owls. This class will explain what details make a bird an owl then it will present a brief account of the world’s owl diversity and how Colorado fits into that diversity. A portrait of owl species known to occur in Colorado will include information about where, when, and how to find each species. The outcome will be a knowledge base that expands the pleasure of engaging owls.
