CWCN Workshop on Owls & Other Birds of Prey - Saturday, 27th April 2019

Our workshop will offer another insight into our natural world which is teaming with life. Active at night are our owls including the vulnerable Powerful Owl while other birds of prey such as kestrels, falcons, goshawks, kits, and eagles use daylight. They all obtain their food by preying on other wildlife including small mammals and birds, fish, lizards. - Martin Fingland from Geckoes Wildlife will generously share his immense knowledge with participants and guide them through ecology, bird behaviour, habitat adaptations and other issues, and what makes Australian birds of prey different to those on other continents. We grateful to funding received from the Australian Government through the National Landcare Program (Environment Small Grants) and Brisbane City Council, and support from Queensland Water and Landcarers and The Local Bulletin. For registration form and more information check out our flyer.
