Nature Night: Owl, A Year In The Lives Of North American Owls says
Owls are fascinating birds – beautiful, silent on the wing and elusive. They can be hard for even the best birders to spot, much less capture in photographs. Naturalist and photographer Paul Bannick has an uncanny ability to not only find them, but to spend hours observing them in their habitat without disturbing them. His photos reveal their daily behavior and life cycle in ways few humans have seen.

Please join your Audubon Society of Portland on a special post-election night with Paul as he takes us on a journey exploring the lives of North American owls throughout the course of a year. The award winning photographer will share his special insight into these enigmatic creatures at our larger event space, Montgomery Park. Suggested donation: $5.

Paul Bannick’s new program will feature gripping stories gleaned from his 10 year pilgrimage tracking owls in the field; as well as dozens of striking new images from his brand-new book: Owl: A Year in the Lives of North American Owls. He’ll use these dramatic photos, as well as videos and sound recordings, to envelope us in the world of these head-turning creatures. We will witness the four seasons on owl territory, as each stage in an owl’s life is chronicled through rare images: courtship, mating, and nesting in the spring; fledging and feeding of young in summer; dispersal and gaining independence in fall; and, finally, winter’s migrations and competitions for food.

Owl is a stunning follow-up to Bannick’s bestselling title, The Owl and the Woodpecker, giving bird lovers yet another gorgeous photographic tribute, engaging natural history, and a compelling call to preserve the habitats that sustain these most iconic of birds.

This is sure to be a talk that will fill up fast, so we encourage you to grab your seat early! EXPRESS ENTRY is available by signing up at bit.ly/NATURENIGHT (this is not an RSVP but gains you quick access to the event).
