Fly Away Screechie !!

Come to the GREAT HORNED OWL RELEASE
The public is invited to the Falmouth Public Library for an extraordinary FREE event on Saturday, February 4, at 4:00 pm.  Massachusetts Audubon director for the Upper and Mid-Cape, Ian Ives will present a slide show all about Owls.  Why?  A great horned owl (nicknamed “Screechie”) was severely injured in a collision with a big truck in the Hatchville area of Falmouth.  Falmouth Dept.of Natural Resources Officer Dan Donahue transported the battered bird to Cape Cod Wildlife Center where she has been treated by the Veterinary staff.  “Screechie” has recovered.  She is scheduled to be released back to the wild at dusk on February 4th, possibly at Shiverick’s Pond, where the public may view the release from the Mullen Hall playground behind the library.  The release will be facilitated by Dr. Roberto Aquilar who has supervised her rehabilitation.  However, he has noted that severe weather conditions could cause a change in plans.
This event is made possible with support from the Friends of the Falmouth Public Library.
