WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING:
• Warm clothing – dress for the outdoors!
• A thermos/travel mug with your choice of warm beverage (you will want it!)
*We do not guarantee that an owl will be captured during your visit. They are wild animals and are influenced by the time of year and weather patterns. However, at the BBO we do catch between 300-500 owls per season so there is a high chance of seeing one if you are willing to put in the time and stay up late!
