Did you know that many owls have special feathers that allow them to fly silently? Or that they have three eyelids? From the tiny and mighty Northern Pygmy-Owls found in our Sanctuary to the larger Great Horned Owls, this week will be devoted to learning all that is known about these mysterious creatures! Study the adaptations that make these birds unique, learn what these owls eat by dissecting owl pellets, and gain an understanding of what makes owls so important to different habitats. If you like owls, this camp will be a hoot!
