Interesting video from CBC Radio interview. In addition, they are asking people to report owl sightings. Dennis, Michael....?

PBS, Nature - Owls Program

 :) A very close friend (and avid birder) sent me information about PBS and the series Nature. An episode about OWLS will be shown tonight at 7:00 P.M. CST. Finally, TV worth watching.  :) :)

Even though the subject line reads as, "Snowy Owls exhibit"....apparently the Assiniboine Zoo is going through a massive reno, and the Polar Bear exhibit is supposed to be the best in the world and state of the art!

The Snowy Owl exhibit will absolutely be fun to see!
