owls

In this broadcast, The Invasion of Snowy Owls, John Weeks sits down with his friend Jerry Smith at Rice Creek discussing the snowy owls in the area. Weeks talks about how the snowy owls appear every few years when the population is up and they usually nest on the arctic tundra. He also mentions that the owls are large and white but sometimes they appear with black spots on them. In this broadcast, Weeks and Smith discuss where the best place is to see the owls and information about them.

John Weeks discusses the appearance of young Screech Owls. Normally hatching in early June, by Independence Day these fuzzy small owls begin venturing out of the nest. Weeks explains the interesting (and often aggressive) life style of the Screech Owl and how to get a better view of these monogamous creatures.
