WHAT A HOOT! THANK YOU FOR A WONDERFUL "EYES ON OWLS" EVENT!
Wow! What a fun and informative program we all shared thanks to Mark & Marcia Wilson from EYES ON OWLS!
The day was warm, but a terrific audience from near and far gathered inside the Sandwich Fairgrounds Arts & Crafts building on Saturday, August 21. With doors open wide there was plenty of fresh air and space to enjoy this one-of-a-kind experience.
The Eyes on Owl program offered us all a chance to see live and up close a variety of owls including Barred Owl, Northern Saw-whet Owl, Eastern Screech Owl, Great-horned Owl as well as the world's largest owl, the Eurasian Eagle Owl. Also in the entourage was a gorgeous, rarely seen American Kestrel! Everyone was delighted to be in the presence of these animals and learn about their feeding and behavioral habits. The enthusiastic crowd got a kick out of imitating some of the owl’s hoots and calls, but none could compare to the Wilson’s perfect mimicry...what a treat!
Mark & Marcia Wilson have an incredible amount of experience and knowledge of owls and raptors, and everyone learned something new. The owls (who are not able to survive on their own in the wild) were just BEAUTIFUL and so fortunate to be in the care of these outstanding naturalists.
If you attended this fantastic event, we thank you and hope you had a great experience! There are many thanks to go out, but we at Chapman Sanctuary & Visny Woods would especially like to thank:
Marcia & Mark Wilson of EYES ON OWLS
The Sandwich Fair Association for the use of the Arts & Crafts Building
Our CSVW Members & Donors
An EXTRA special thank you to our Anonymous Donor for funding this event

This event is always a favorite and we are excited to offer it again this year! Join us at CSVW for a fun and educational walk through the trails, gardens and Teacup Lake. Expert birder Christine Costello of USFS will lead the way and share her knowledge of the many warblers and other birds that return to Chapman Sanctuary each spring. Participants will learn to identify birds both by sight and through individual bird calls. Topics discussed include species preferred habitat, food source, nesting and more!
We were thrilled to have a few new faces join us last year and hope to see a few more when we hit the trails and welcome back the warblers!
Make sure to put this fantastic and fun event on your Spring calendar - it is always great experience!
