The days are getting longer and cooler, the leaves are turning and Autumn is upon us. In other words, another great day for an owl adventure in Forest Park with the perpetually friendly Mark Glenshaw! Unusually entertaining and witty for a dedicated naturalist, Mark's interest in and enthusiasm for nature and owls continues to burn strong as we enter this 14th year of his documenting of this family of great horned owls. I first met him back in 2009 when I did my first Forest Park 365 project (forestpark365.com), and he has some great stories to tell of nocturnal adventures and owl behavior. Be sure to bring your camera and a telephoto lens as there will most likely be some great opportunity for capturing some really great images. Sign up soon, though, as space is very limited!
Be sure to dress for the weather, don't wear fur (!!) and have good walking shoes, preferable waterproof.
