The 2021 Eugene Christmas Bird Count (ECBC) is Sunday, January 2, 2022, our regular day…
Snowy Owl: A Visual Natural History
Join award-winning author and photographer Paul Bannick on an intimate visual exploration of the life history of the Snowy Owl, based upon his 2020 book, Snowy Owl: A Visual Natural History. Through dozens of never-before-published images of this Arctic owl, Paul will help us understand how they survive, breed, and live alongside other wildlife on the Arctic tundra and in wintering areas further south. He will also look at how they compare to other North American owls and what we can do to help them thrive. Paul’s startling photographs illustrate behaviors, such as courtship displays, that are heretofore only available as illustrations. These images are complemented by decades of first-hand experience with these birds during all seasons of the year and reflect the latest science.
The program is sponsored by The Eugene Natural History Society and cosponsored by Lane County Audubon Society.
The meeting will open at 7:00 but the presentation will begin at 7:30. This allows everyone time to get connected and join in friendly conversation. Time: Friday December 10, 2021 7:00 p.m. Pacific Time (US and Canada).
