CWCN's highly successful workshop series on local biodiversity offers yet another insight into our natural world with an event on owls and diurnal birds of prey to take place on 27th April.

Time: 9:00am-12:00pm. Saturday, 27th April 2019

Place: CWCN Centre, 47 Hepworth St, Chapel Hill (UBD 178 A11)

Backyards, bushland, forests and grasslands, river valleys, hillsides, and coastal cliffs are all teaming with life. Active only at nights are our owls including the tallest among them, the Powerful Owl. Other birds of prey such as kestrels, falcons, goshawks, kites, and eagles use daylight . They all obtain their food by preying on other wildlife including small mam-mals, birds, fish, or lizards.

Martin Fingland from Geckoes Wildlife will generously share his immense knowledge with participants and guide them through ecology, bird behaviour, habitat adaptations and oth-er issues, and what makes Australian birds of prey different to those on other continents.

This workshop is possible thanks to the Federal Government and the National Landcare Program's Environment Small Grants scheme, Brisbane City Council's Community Conser-vation Partnerships Program and the ongoing support of Queensland Water and Land-carers as well as The Local Bulletin.
