Eyes on Owls
Williams Barn
We are excited to bring a barn-full of beautiful owls for you to view up close.  The great folks of Eyes On Owls bring a variety of owls for you to see up close. Chances are you’ll meet New England’s tiniest owl, the Northern Saw-Whet Owl (weighing in at 4 ounces) along with the world’s largest owl, the Eurasian Eagle Owl (check out that five foot wingspan!). Other species that figure prominently in their program can include Eastern Screech Owl, Barred Owl, Barn Owl, Great-horned Owl, Snowy Owl and Spectacled Owl.  Space is limited at the Williams Barn, so please sign up for this free event. This program is made possible with a grant from the Groton Commissioners of Trust Funds.
