Owl Webinar (free)!
A webinar is Internet-speak for web conferencing; connecting an audience and a speaker or speakers via their computers. One can participate and never leave the comfort of home. I have the privilege of presenting a webinar on owls in the near future, and you are invited.
The Ohio Bird Conservation Initiative has launched a monthly series of webinars, and I'm at bat on Wednesday, January 15th. The webinar runs from noon until 1:00 pm. To register (a requirement), CLICK HERE. It's free, and easy.
Our webinar is visual and and audio - I'll be giving my program "Owls of Ohio" complete with numerous photos and other information. It's kind of like tuning into a radio program, but this one has images.
The webinar will be much more than just Ohio's eight regularly occurring owls (and four rarities). Owls are one of the most interesting groups of birds, and people have long been smitten with them. I will go into some of the reasons for that popularity, which dates back to the dawn of written communication, and the factors that make owls such formidable predators.
Again, if you want to take a pictorial ride through the world of owls, full of facts and photos, just CLICK HERE. I'll hope to interface with you on January 15th!
