  • — Owls are usually heard, rarely seen but are found throughout the local forests along the Delaware River corridor.
    Their drab colored feathers conceal them in the darkness of the night sky. Gliding silently through the trees they search for food for their young.
    Join National Park Service Park Ranger Katherine Szupillo as she explores the world of the owl. Both New York and Pennsylvania have over eight different owls that find their homes in the area.
    Why do some owls have "ear" tufts? How many eyelids do owls have? What is a group of owls called? These and many other questions you may have wondered about these beautiful creatures will be answered.
