New England Owls with Peter Christoph     7:00

The Abington Public Library is pleased to welcome back Nature Photographer Peter Christoph who will present Discover the Owls of New England on Tuesday, January 28 at 7:00 PM. In this captivating presentation, Peter delivers stunning photographs of his favorite owls combined with stories that entertain, educate and inspire the audience. You’ll learn the secrets Peter uses to find and photograph these same owls in the wild in their natural habitat! Eight species of expected owls in New England include: Great Horned, Barred, and Eastern Screech – all year- round residents and fairly easy to spot. Long-eared, Short-eared, and Snowy are winter migrants and breed far north of us. Northern Saw-whet Owls do breed in New England but are quite small and rarely seen. Barn Owls have bred in New England but are the toughest of all to find. He’ll wrap up this exceptional wildlife program with beautiful images of a vagrant migrant- a rare visitor called the Great Gray Owl.

Registration is not necessary for this program; sixty attendees will be accommodated at this program on a first-to-arrive basis. This program is funded by State Aid to Public Libraries.
