Enjoy a holiday bird walk led by naturalist Debbie Becker searching for the legendary owls that winter at Bartow Pell Mansion

Barred, long-eared, saw-whet, and great horned owls have been returning year after year to harbor in the pines and woods around the mansion. Other possible sightings are crossbills and pine siskins that may still be migrating. Join along for a wintery holiday ramble.
