February meeting

Thursday, February 8, 2018 – 6 to 8:30 p.m.

Program: Owls of the World by John & Joy Taylor

Owls cannot move their eyes in their sockets. With their straight-on stares and nocturnal habits, owls are among the most intriguing and inscrutable creatures we have on the planet. Imagine what it would be like to be snatched by an owl and struggle to be free – futile as it may be, death is inevitable. Learn about these and other owl characteristics as Joy and John Taylor show 63 species of owls of the 236 that exist in the world today. They will show owls from 56 different countries, with maps of the places where owls live. A few owls are important because some of them are on the brink of extinction while others are so isolated on small islands as to be considered rare and possibly endangered.

John and Joy Taylor are Siskiyou Audubon Society members who have a life list of 959 species of birds world-wide. John is a graduate of Cornell University’s Lab of Ornithology with a diploma in Bird Biology.
