Hope on Silent Wings
We try calling, a plaintive “who-cooks-for-you.” I see their faces full of anticipation, straining to hear a response. Children nestled tight against parent and grandparent, eyes wide, bright like those stars up above.
With each breath, I taste the autumn air, filled with the scent of sun-warmed leaves and the spicy aroma of the nearby marsh.
At night as I climb under our winter quilt, I imagine the chipmunk, snugged down in its den, lying on top of a thick pile of leaves.
Chickadees for the Day
Pshht, pshht, pshht we call as we sit on the frozen ground so close to one another that we can feel the cold spray of our neighbor’s pshht.
Owl Moon Prowl
Join naturalist Susie Spikol for this classic March program for families with children of all ages. We will start off inside to discover the fascinating adaptations of these nocturnal birds of prey and then we'll quietly walk outside in hopes of calling in a barred owl or two. Find out Whooo Cooks for You and learn how to try this at your own home. Come hoot it up on this full moon night-time adventure. At the Harris Center. Free. Starts at 7pm and concludes at 8pm. read more »
