Owls of New England With Peter Christoph

Nantucket Atheneum |Nantucket, MA
May 22, 2019 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Peter Christoph, a wildlife photographer, speaker, and author from Lancaster, MA., delivers stunning photographs of his favorite owls combined with stories that entertain, educate and inspire the audience.
He’ll discuss the secrets he uses to find and photograph owls in the wild in their natural habitat. Nantucket is home to Barn Owls, which are often the toughest to find elsewhere in New England. The island also gets frequent winter visits from Snowy Owls.
In addition, Christoph discusses those more frequently found off island: Great Horned, Barred, and Eastern Screech. Long-eared, Short-eared, and Snowy are winter migrants and breed far north of us. Northern Saw-whet Owls do breed in New England but are quite small and rarely seen. He’ll wrap up his talk with beautiful images of a vagrant migrant- a rare visitor called the Great Gray Owl.
Christoph is a naturalist and award-winning wildlife photographer. He has presented at the Photographic Society of America (PSA), New England Camera Club Council (NECCC,) and is a regular speaker for the Appalachian Mountain Club, Mass Audubon and the National Wildlife Refuge System. Christoph has published three bird photography books, including his latest ‘The Art of Bird Photography.”
Cosponsored with the Maria Mitchell Association.
