Topic: A Year in the Lives of North American Owls
Speaker: Paul Bannick
Paul Bannick will present a program featuring video and stories from the ﬁeld and from his 2017 book with the same title.We will witness the four seasons on territory in an owl’s life chronicled through courtship, mating, and nesting in spring; ﬂedging and feeding of young in summer; dispersal and independence in fall; and ﬁnally migrations and competitions for food in winter. All 19 species found in Canada and U.S. will be featured, with a special focus on Northern Pygmy-Owl, Great Gray Owl, Burrowing Owl, and Snowy Owl.Paul’s presentation represents nearly ten years of working in some of the most remote parts of the continent, at the darkest hours of the day, tracking owls as they move through their lives.
