I'm giving a talk tonight at the Maplewood Public Library on the mating, nesting and owlets of the Great Horned Owls I study in Forest Park. Here are the details from the library's flyer:
Mark H.X. Glenshaw, an award-winning amateur naturalist returns to the Maplewood
Public Library for a talk focusing on the nesting behavior and the owlets raised by the pair of
Great Horned Owls he has been observing, documenting, and doing out reach with in Forest Park since December 2005. This pair of owls, Charles and Sarah, has nested every year and Mark has been able to observe and document: mating, nest selection, feeding of the owlets, fledging and gradual maturation of owlets, and the dispersal of the owlets. Mark has been featured in The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, St. Louis Magazine, KTVI Fox 2, The West End Word, and Show-Me Missouri. He frequently leads tours of the owls’ territory called “owl prowls”. He writes about his work on his blog, Forest Park Owls, forestparkowls.blogspot.com
