Scientists believe that California has 15 species of owls. This is just an estimate since owls typically live in remote areas and are active mainly at night which makes it hard to find them. There are three California species that are on the federally or California threatened or endangered list: Northern Spotted, Elf and Great Gray Owls. Owls are physically different than other birds in many ways, by the shape of their heads and the position of their eyes. During this seminar, a California naturalist will teach us other ways in which owls are different than other birds. We will learn about three Owl Superpowers that enable these raptors to effectively hunt at night. Image by Danny Moore, Pixabay.
