The library is excited to welcome back nature photographer and author, Peter Christoph! In this captivating presentation, Peter delivers stunning photographs of his favorite owls combined with stories that entertain, educate and inspire. You’ll learn the secrets Peter uses to find and photograph these same owls in the wild in their natural habitat. The eight species of expected owls in New England include: Great Horned, Barred, and Eastern Screech – all year-round residents and fairly easy to spot; Long-eared, Short-eared, and Snowy are winter migrants and breed far north of us; Northern Saw-whet Owls do breed in New England but are quite small and rarely seen. Barn Owls have bred in New England but are the toughest of all to find. After showcasing all of these owls, he’ll wrap up this exceptional wildlife program with beautiful images of a vagrant migrant - a rare visitor called the Great Gray Owl. Don't miss this fantastic program, filled with truly stunning photographs!
