Kurt Leuschner, Professor of Natural Resources at College of the Desert, will introduce you to all of the owls and other night birds that occur in the Southwestern United States. From the tiny Elf Owl to the Great Horned Owl, these owls occupy a variety of habitats and make some very un-owl-like sounds. After this talk you'll want to spend more time outside at night so you can experience these nocturnal birds for yourself.
