Eastern Screech Owl

During February school vacation week, the WLT was thrilled to welcome back to Waltham Marcia and Mark Wilson, and seven of their amazing birds of prey (six owls and one American kestrel). About 50 children and 50 adults attended, filling the Whitcomb Hall of the First Parish Church in Waltham. We were introduced to an Eastern screech owl, a Saw whet owl, an American kestrel, a barred owl, a barn owl, a Great Horned owl, and an Eurasian Eagle owl. Everyone had a wonderful time, hooting, looking at owl pellets, and taking lots of photos. Many thanks to the Waltham Cultural Council, part of the Massachusetts Cultural Council, for providing partial funding.
