Sat. Apr 17:CHAS Field Trip to Dismal Swamp NWR - Washington Ditch
Wed. Apr 21: Monthly membership meeting via Zoom. John Spahr will present “The Eastern Screech Owl in Virginia and Beyond” - John has done field work of this small owl for several years in Highland County. He is also currently in the process of examining most of the museum specimen collections of this species throughout the US. This program will include some of his findings, such as habitat and elevation preferences, nest selection, and roosting strategies. Also, what’s with the two color morphs – red and gray? Why do we in Virginia have mostly “reds”, while Ontario and Michigan has mostly “grays”? The program does include graphs and charts, which will be mercifully few, and will be highlighted with lots of quality images
