Slide Talk: Peter Christoph, Discover the Owls of New England
Time: 4:00 pm-5:00 pm
In this captivating presentation, wildlife photographer Peter Christoph will deliver 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 owls in their natural habitat. Eight species of expected owls in New England include the Great Horned, Barred, and Eastern Screech owls, all year-round residents and fairly easy to spot; Long-eared, Short-eared, and Snowy Owls, winter migrants that breed far north of us; Northern Saw-whet owls which breed in New England but are quite small and rarely seen; and Barn Owls, the toughest of all to find. He’ll wrap up his slide talk with beautiful images of a vagrant migrant, a rare visitor called the Great Gray Owl.
