The Cape Cod Bird Club will meet on Monday, March 13th, 7 PM, at the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History, Route 6A, Brewster. Meetings are free and open to all. The program for March features Denver Holt talking about Adaptations in Owls.
With their intense, almost human stares, fascinating adaptations for nocturnal hunting, and secretive nature, owls are a favorite group for most birders. They occur on all continents except Antarctica and have populated the most remote groups of islands in the world, including Hawaii. Today we recognize between about 250 species worldwide.
International owl expert Denver Holt is founder and president of the Owl Research Institute and the Ninepipes Wildlife Research Center, a nonprofit organization located in Charlo, Montana.Holt’s research was the cover story for National Geographic Magazine, and his work has been the subject of many television bites on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, and Disney, as well as featured on Audubon’s Up-Close Series, PBS’s Bird Watch, and David Attenborough’s Life of Birds, among others.
