You're in for one, two and three treats with naturalist Ed Dominguez! This will be his third year participating in the Environmental Science Center's Bird Fest and this time he'll discuss three commonly seen (and heard) owls of urban Puget Sound during their courtship and mating season.
Identification, vocalizations, unique physical traits, and life cycles will be shared. Get to know your local owls and the space we share with them… You may discover a pair nesting in your neighborhood!
A native of Mt Shasta, Ed Dominguez obtained his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from California State University. Growing up in the southeastern Cascades Range, Ed was introduced to the plants and animals of the mountains at an early age by his father. Knowledgeable in geology, trees, wildflowers, and mammals, Ed particularly enjoys birding and bird songs. He leads owl prowls, bat walks, nature hikes and presents programs on a variety of naturalist topics, including through his Getting Wild blog and YouTube channel.
In the meantime, you can also catch a replay of his fall presentation on Winter Backyard Birds through our event website:
