Through intimate images, personal stories and video recordings from the Arctic tundra, renowned wildlife photographer Paul Bannick explores the four seasons of the snowy owl at 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 10, at Whatcom Museum’s Old City Hall, 121 Prospect St.
Bannick‘s images cover spring courtship and nesting, nestlings in the Arctic, and winter migrations to the lower 48 states. In these times of changing climate and habitat, witness the adaptations of snowy owls and their neighbors, including the willow and rock ptarmigans, red-throated and Pacific loons, snow buntings, Arctic foxes, and polar bears.
The event is one in a series of events in a monthlong exploration of snowy owls and other winter migratory birds at Whatcom Museum, taking place through Feb. 5.
The event is free for museum member; $3 suggested donation for others. Details: whatcommuseum.org, 360-778-8930.
