Meet at the US-131/D Avenue commuter parking lot, and we will leave at 6:00 PM. Our search will be done from roadsides by car caravan, so I will be looking for other driver(s). We will search for the three species that regularly occur in this area: Great Horned, Barred, and Eastern Screech Owls. On these trips we at least hope to hear the owls, but some, like the little screech owls, often come in for a look at us, which offers us a look at them. Then everyone leaves happy or at least knowing what the other looked like. So, bring your binoculars. Please do dress warmer than you think you should; quietly standing around at night in January will be cold. But it will only be uncomfortable IF you’re not properly dressed. A good plan would be to figure out how much you are going to wear, then add or bring another layer. We should be back before 8:00 PM.
