Once again we will try our luck to find a Screech Owl during an evening snowshoe hike hopefully lit by the bright moon. On this our 10th year of this hike the moon will be 56% full and should rise a few hours before the start of the hike - if the weather and clouds will cooperate we should have plenty of light. Depending on snow conditions this will be by snowshoe or possibly just hiking boots - we will work with what Mother Nature provides.
