(BLOOMINGTON) - A guided hike during the peak of owl mating season at Monroe Lake offers a chance for participants to use their voices to call the birds
The owl prowl is Monday, Febuary. 25, at 6 p.m., at Fairfax State Recreation Area.
Late winter is the peak of owl mating season, and, therefore, the peak of owl calling season. Monroe Lake naturalist Jill Vance says owls are out looking for a mate and are more inclined to respond when called.
The hike will meet in front of the Four Winds Resort.Before the hike, there will be a brief discussion of owl mating habits and instruction on imitating owl calls.
Participants should dress warmly and bring a flashlight.
The owl prowl is free but limited to 12 people.
Registration is required by Feb. 22 by calling the Paynetown Activity Center or emailing jvance@dnr.IN.gov.
