The SNOWStorm is ComingReport your Snowy Owl (SNOW) sightings here.
It appears that this winter will be another record year for Snowy Owls moving south. Staff naturalists would again like to track any that are seen in Calvert County with the hopes of getting the owls banded or possibly included in the satellite tracking program. Contact Andy Brown at email@example.com if you see a snowy owl.
Barn Owls are Back!
For the first time in 17 years, a family of barn owls has settled in a nest box placed by the Calvert County Barn Owl Nest Box Project. The Calvert County Natural Resources Division and the Southern Maryland Audubon Society are partners in the project to increase the numbers of barn owls in the county.
There is a need for additional nest box locations and suitable barn owl habitat. Those interested in helping can contact Andy Brown at the Battle Creek Cypress Swamp Nature Center at 410-535-5327 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
