Many people have heard an owl, but few have ever seen one. Jim White, Senior Fellow for Land & Biodiversity Management at Delaware Nature Society, presents an in-depth look at the life histories and habitats of the eight species of owls that can be found in Delaware. These include Delaware’s nesting owl species – the Barred, Barn, Great Horned, and Eastern Screech Owls, plus the owls that may visit Delaware during the winter months, Short-eared, Long-eared, Saw-whet and Snowy Owls. Learn how, when and where to look for these nocturnal raptors this winter.
