Westborough – A standing-room-only crowd of over 250 people gathered at the Knights of Columbus Hall March 23, to see Mark Wilson present “Who's Watching You? Owls of the World.”

The program featured a slide show of owl photographs taken by Wilson, hooting lessons, and six live owls, ranging from the tiny Eastern Screech-Owl, to the world's largest owl species, the Eurasian Eagle-Owl.? All of the owls presented were permanently disabled and would not survive on their own if returned to the wild, according to Wilson. Many were injured when they were hit by cars.

The event was sponsored by the Westborough Community Land Trust, and supported in part by a grant from the Westborough Cultural Council, a local agency that is in turn supported by the statewide Massachusetts Cultural Council.
