FINAL REPORT ON WISE OWLS Diane Wise has sent in the final word on the nesting owls whose ups and downs The Spoonbill has reported. The late nesting of the Screech Owls, whose first attempt was foiled by a squirrel, has ended in failure. Two eggs were laid, but only one tiny chick hatched. Whether It was taken by a predator or died naturally is unknown; it disappeared near the end of June. The large Barn Owl chick, however, which Diane had treated for ants, "thrived magnificently," she says. It finally left the box on June 14. BIRDERS NEEDED TO GIVE NATURE PROGRAMS Birders who want to share their knowledge of birds and birding are needed to help the Education Committee of the Outdoor Nature Club present nature programs to schoolchildren and adults. Presentations with slides are already prepared for the speaker, but those who have been giving them find that the many questions about birds and birding exceed their knowledge. Expertise from birders is needed to satisfy this curiosity. Most presentations are given in the daytime. For more information call Debbie Cooper at 784-7644 after 5 p.m.
