Owl Moon

27 Sep 2015 10:51 AM | Kimberley Thompson (Administrator)

  At last evening's Owl Moon event, the Friends "adopted" this beautiful Barred Owl, one of the Raptor Conservancy's education birds (which cannot be returned to the wild due to permanent injuries).  In addition to supporting this Raptor Conservancy education Owl, the Friends will be building Barred Owl nest boxes for installation at Mason Neck State Park.  Barred Owls are cavity dwellers, like Bluebirds and Wood Ducks (which also have nest boxes at the Park), and all are negatively impacted by continuing loss of habitat.  The Park provides optimal habitat for these birds.
