2014 Ohio Dominican University Birding Club/Union County Bird Club Owl Walk
By Blake Mathys
On November 15th, 2014, Dimi and I hosted Ohio Dominican's Birding Club and the Union County Bird Club (plus some family and friends) for a hotdog roast and owl walk. A total of 36 people participated in the walk, and we were able to see 5 Eastern Screech-Owls and we heard a few more. We walked nearly 2.5 miles. Below are some photos from the night. It was a very enjoyable evening, and we are looking forward to next year's walk!
