Jamestown, NY – Owls are fascinating creatures, and it is a rare opportunity to be able to get close to one.
Live owls will be the highlight of the Audubon Center & Sanctuary’s Owl Day on Saturday, November 1, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Mark Baker is a licensed raptor (bird of prey) rehabilitator. He will be at Owl Day with several of his owls that are unable to be released back into the wild. Visitors can see Baker and his owls and learn more during his presentations at 10:30 a.m., noon, and 1:30 p.m.
Visitors can also learn about these silent hunters of the night with hands-on activities that demonstrate their unique hunting techniques. You can find out what they eat by dissecting an owl pellet and make an owl craft to take home.
You can take a behind-the-scenes tour of the nature center’s non-releasable Bald Eagle, Liberty, and discover how she is different from owls.
