YOUNG bird lovers can get up close and personal with Australian owls at an upcoming workshop in Morley.

The City of Bayswater and the WA Birds of Prey Centre are holding a free Owls Uncovered workshop at Morley Library on July 9 at 1.30pm.

Children aged between three and 12 years can touch and learn about several owls including the barn owl, boobook owl, sooty owl and the masked owl.

WA Birds of Prey Centre owner Yvonne Sitko said the workshop aimed to spread more awareness about the environment and what could be done to ensure owls survive.

“This is the only library visit we are doing this school holidays,” she said.

“We will talk about nest box building during the session but also to avoid any rat or mice bait.”

Mayor Dan Bull said it was a great chance for children to discover animals that lived on their doorstep.
