Explore New Jersey’s forests at dusk and you just might find yourself in the middle of an interrogation when you hear, “Who?! Who cooks for you?” But it’s just the barred owl, who sounds like inquisitive bird, but in fact, it’s just trying to protect its turf. Want to learn more about New Jersey’s owls? Then you don’t want to miss this early-evening hike with GSWA’s Hazel England, and conservation biologist, Dr. Emile DeVito. The Great Swamp Wildlife Observation Center is prime owl-spotting habitat and a perfect spot for Dr. DeVito to demonstrate his owl-calling expertise. With a little luck, you might just hear (or even see) some of these stealthy night flyers as they move in to investigate the mysterious sounds.
