Who cooks for me? Who cooks for you?

You may be wondering what those two questions have to do with the Beaver Meadow Audubon Center
, but they aren’t actually questions at all. When you say them together, the phrase “who cooks for me, who cooks for you,” is actually the call of a Barred Owl
. Try saying it a couple of times without moving your lips, and you will get an idea of what I got to hear at the Center this past weekend on the Owl Prowl.

Owl Prowl is just one of the many educational programs that make Beaver Meadow Audubon Center a great place for learning. Recently, I packed my car full of friends and warm clothes, and headed to North Java for a night walk. When we got there, we were immersed in a presentation on the different type of owls in our region. The naturalist was explaining to our group how an Owl Prowl works, what type of owls we might hear, and what they look like if we would be lucky enough to see them.
