Owl in the Box

Owl in the Box
Speaker: Lisa Potash

Lisa Potash, a NJ mom and bird watcher, will present her “Owl in the Box” observations of Eastern Screech Owls. Since 2014 Screech Owls have been a part of the back yard and front yard owl boxes. Watching through the windows and porch of her suburban home, Lisa has gained insight into the habits of these secretive and unpredictable birds, while respecting the space and behavior of their wild bird status. If you subscribe to the Jerseybirds listserv, you have undoubtedly read some of Lisa’s updates which provide an intimate view of the owls in her yard.

Lisa will share numerous photos and videos chronicling a glimpse into the lives of Screech Owls.
