Folger Stable Speaker Series: What Makes Owls so Special?
October 21 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Featuring ornithologist, artist and naturalist Hans Peeters. Are owls really wise? The seductive blink of their eyes and slow turns of their heads certainly suggest deliberation and purpose. Wisdom, however, is hardly an attribute of these efficient killing machines. The large head is mostly filled with an extraordinary hearing apparatus and out-sized eyes that leave little room for a fairly modest brain. So what makes owls so special? Nearly everything!
