Program on Saw-whet Owl, Jan. 16
Though quite a bit is known about the elusive Northern Saw-whet Owl,
there are still many unanswered questions, according to Dawn Garcia, who
will make a presentation on the little owls at the Thursday, Jan. 16 meeting
of the Sacramento Audubon Society.
Garcia has been banding the owls for eight years at the Big Chico Creek Ecological
Reserve, east of Chico, as they migrate into the Sierra foothills every autumn.
The owls, whose name is derived from a call that sounds like a saw being sharpened,
tend to roost in dense evergreens and hunt mostly at dawn and dusk, which makes
them hard to see.
The public is invited to the 7 p.m. meeting at Effie Yeaw Nature Center in Ancil
Hoffman Park (For directions, see sacnaturecenter.com).
There will be no charge for the program or parking, and no park-entry fee.
