Starr's Cave Annual Owl Prowl 
General Event Information
Event Category:
Kids & Family
free and open to the public  
Dates and Times:
February 13, 6:00PM-7:00PM

January and February are active months for barred owls because it is when they begin looking for a partner. They use sound and body language to try to impress each other in hopes of finding a mate. Those who would like to learn more about owls are invited to attend this Owl Prowl.

This hour-long program will be led by Des Moines County Conservation Naturalist Katherine Brakeville. Participants will have the chance to dissect and investigate actual owl pellets while learning about local owl species. We will also be calling for barred owls using recorded calls. If all goes as planned, owl prowlers will hear owls talk back and might even get to see one swoop silently down for a closer look.

Since silent listening is required, children should be accompanied by an adult. No past birding experience or knowledge is necessary to attend. Those attendees who have experience calling in barred owls are welcome to share their skill at the Prowl. To register, contact Starr’s Cave Nature Center at 319-753-5808.
