What an Owl Knows - Livestream

Great Horned Owlets

Human’s fascination with owls was first documented in the cave paintings at Chauvet in southern France. With their forward gaze and quiet flight, owls are often a symbol of wisdom, knowledge, and foresight. But what does an owl really know? And what do we really know about owls? Some 260 species of owls reside on every continent except Antarctica, but they are far more difficult to find and study than other birds because they are cryptic, camouflaged, and mostly active at night. Jennifer Ackerman explores the rich biology and natural history of owls and examines remarkable new scientific discoveries about their brains and behavior.
