Learn about the intertwined histories of owls and woodpeckers through an exhibit at the Island County Historical Museum.

The museum presents a traveling exhibit from the Burke Museum in Seattle called The Owl and the Woodpecker in Washington: Photographs by Paul Bannick from Feb. 4 through April 15.

Bannick, an award-winning photographer, author and conservationist, examines the life histories of owls and woodpeckers and the unique roles they play in defining and enriching their often threatened habitats.

Based on Bannick’s book, “The Owl and the Woodpecker,” the exhibit features 15 photographic prints of owl and woodpecker species found in the Pacific Northwest, plus text panels, birdcalls and drumming recordings by audio-naturalist Martyn Stewart.

While at the museum, also explore engaging local history exhibits.

Museum admission is $3 for adults; $2.50 for seniors, students, and military; $6 for a family of three; and free for members and ages 5 and under.

The museum is located at 908 NW Alexander St. in Coupeville.
