[DNR] Prowl for owls on guided evening hike at Fairfax SRA, Feb. 25
Start Date: 2/6/2013Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 2/6/2013End Time: 11:59 PM

Event Description
A guided hike during the peak of owl mating season at Monroe Lake offers a chance for participants to use their voices to call the birds.

The owl prowl is Monday, Feb. 25, at 6 p.m., at Fairfax State Recreation Area, 9301 S. Fairfax Road, Bloomington.

Late winter is the peak of owl mating season, and, therefore, the peak of owl calling season.

“Owls are actively seeking mates right now,” Monroe Lake naturalist Jill Vance said. “This makes them more inclined to respond when we attempt to call them in close.”

The hike will meet in front of the Four Winds Resort.

Before the hike, there will be a brief discussion of owl mating habits and instruction on imitating owl calls. Participants should dress warmly and bring a flashlight.

The owl prowl is free but limited to 12 people. Registration is required by Feb. 22 by calling the Paynetown Activity Center at (812) 837-9967 or emailing jvance@dnr.IN.gov.
