Owls of Montana

Description:
Last Chance Audubon program. Join Tom Forwood, an avid naturalist, as he shares what he has learned about how and why Montana truly excels in owl diversity. Montana contains a wide variety of habitats and landscapes which provide our great state with excellent bird diversity. Montana features 15 species of owl, 14 of those are known to breed here. Only the state of Washington has as many. Tom will show how our owls are also quite diverse, how they live in different habitats and feature different habits. Come out and learn who goes ‘hoo’.
Tom Forwood Jr works in park management for Montana Fish Wildlife & Parks. He spent 10 years as an interpretive ranger teaching numerous visitors of all ages about the birds and other plants and wildlife of Montana. Tom, a diehard birder, is also a regional eBird reviewer, leads regular field trips for Sacagawea Audubon, compiles two Christmas Bird Counts and is on the Montana Bird Records Committee.
