Join avid naturalist, Tom Forwood Jr. as he shares what he has learned about how and why Montana truly excels in owl diversity. Montana contains a wide variety of habitats and landscapes which provide our great state with excellent bird diversity. Montana features 15 species of owl, 14 of those are known to breed here. Only the state of Washington has as many. Tom will show how our owls are also quite diverse, how they live in different habitats and feature different habits. Come out and learn who goes ‘hoo’.
