Where: National Wildlife Federation Building, 11100 Wildlife Center Drive, in Reston

ASNV will have its first in-person Audubon Afternoon in more than two years on June 5. Four live owls will be the stars of the show. We’ll gather informally starting at 2:30 PM in the cafeteria of the National Wildlife Federation Building, 11100 Wildlife Center Drive, in Reston. At 3:00 PM we’ll have a brief Annual Meeting where we will elect officers and directors.

Our main program will begin at 3:15 PM, when Secret Garden Bird and Bees will present, “A Year in the Life of an Owl,” featuring four live owls for you to see and photograph: a Barn Owl, a Screech Owl, a Great Horned Owl, and a Barred Owl. This is an event the whole family will enjoy! We welcome any food and drink you would like to share with everyone during the informal portion of the program.

“A Year in the Life of an Owl” follows our region’s four resident owls from winter through fall. We’ll get a peek into their romantic courtships. We’ll see the challenges of raising young and the difficult transition from nestling to fledgling. And finally, we’ll see the quiet time when the young seek out their place in the world and the adults can (almost) relax. Our four Owl Ambassadors will help us tell the story. You’ll meet Scarlett (Barred Owl), Hodor (Great Horned Owl), Phantom (Barn Owl), and Kvosir (Eastern Screech Owl), learn about each species and their lives in captivity. You might even get to take a few selfies! Registration is not required, just come on down!
