Outdoor Hour Challenge:
For this challenge, look up which owls live in your area and make a list. You can use a field guide or look up owls on All About Birds: Owls.
Choose one of the owls to learn more about, including the sound that the owl makes. In my experience, you will hear owls more than you will see them.
