Did you know Owls can twist their necks to turn their heads about 270 degrees—about ¾ of a full circle—without moving their shoulders? Owls don’t have eyeballs; the eyes are long and shaped more like a tube. Owl eyes can’t turn in their sockets because of this shape.
Owls are known as The Silent Hunters – In the dark of night, the nocturnal hunters emerge. Owls spend their nights hunting for prey and raising their families.
Students of all ages are invited to come see “Live Owls” and learn fun facts about owls. The program will be held on Monday, March 13, 2017, at 2:00 p.m. at the Huntsville Public Library located at 1219 13th Street. Huntsville Audubon is sponsoring the educational program featuring live owls in partnership with the Children’s Department at Huntsville Public Library. The program will be presented by guest speaker, Mary Anne Weber, the Education Director of Houston Audubon and the manager of the Sims Bayou Urban Nature Center.
