Hatching, Hunting & Chick Development
This webinar discusses the rapid stages of development expected to occur in the short six-weeks between hatching and fledging and the demands placed on each breeding pair by their ravenous offspring. Hunting techniques, food webs, and raptor digestion will be covered before we wrap up with the dissection of an owl pellet.
Attendees wishing to follow along are invited to pick up individual pellets free of charge thanks to a generous grant provided by the Dorr Foundation!
Pellets and accompanying diagrams will be available at the Manchester City Library, the Concord Public Library, or the Massabesic Audubon Center in Auburn starting on May 3rd. While pellets are free, they are limited to one per household.
