Owl Prowl in Southwick


September 9, 2016

Steve Svec

Despite being postponed one day, the prospect of finding owls was still enough to attract 23 people.  We began at the Great Brook crossing to the transfer station and were rewarded with two Screech Owls, heard by everyone and seen by several.  Our next targets were Barred Owls along Munn Brook at the foot of Drake Mountain.  We got three of them to respond, two serenading closely together.  It took more time, but we also got a Great Horned Owl to begin hooting in this area.  It was a very successful prowl.
