Editor’s Note: The Griffin is a terrific arts institution located just North of Boston. I’ve also seen the Wilson’s present on several occasions – strongly recommended. Bring the kids!

Who’s watching you? Find out on Sunday, March 23rd when Eyes On Owls presents a live owl program in conjunction with the Griffin Museum of Photography and sponsored by Digital Silver Imaging and LensProToGo. This program is a hoot for everybody from grade K through adults. All who attend are in for some fun with educational close-up views of these secretive birds of prey.
Naturalist Marcia Wilson will present Who’s Watching You? Owls of the World. Wilson introduces the audience to owls found in New England as well as other parts of the world. A slide show begins the program by showcasing colorful wildlife photos by her husband Mark Wilson.
Marcia imitates the owls’ calls, paying special attention to the more common owls that we might encounter in our area. After a hooting lesson and much anticipation, Marcia brings out the live owls one at a time. With each owl perched securely on her gloved hand, she walks out among the audience with six or seven owls. There’s plenty of time for close-up views, photos and questions. Great photo opportunities start about 20 minutes into the program; so have your camera ready!
Join the fun and win a raffle prize! Eyes On Owls has donated an 18” X 24” fine art print of a Snowy owl in flight, photographed by Mark Wilson, to benefit the Griffin Museum of Photography.
