Whooooo Visited The Barney Library?
Wind Over Wings, founded by Wildlife Rehabilitator Hope Douglas, brought four owls to The Barney Library, much to the delight of sixty people! The audience had the opportunity to meet a Barred Owl, an Eastern Screech Owl, a Saw Whet Owl and a Great Horned Owl. The program, sponsored by The Friends of The Farmington Library, covered the owls' remarkable hearing, sight, and ability to fly silently. The secrets of spotting an owl in the wild were also shared. Needless to say, the owls stole the show, charming the participants with sounds of all kinds.
