And that is our study of scientific merit. You will note that so little is known about the NSWO in the Pacific States, that our banding and telemetry studies will help us better understand the ecology of the NSWO in this region- new and exciting stuff (and necessary knowledge for conservation measures)! This picture shows two dedicated volunteers (Raina King and Colleen Martin) banding and taking measurements of the a NSWO (photo by Steve King) during our fall monitoring project.
See the previous post for a pic of the harness and radio and a map of one of our owls movements to Bidwell Park. And don't forget to go to the Adopt -an-Owl tab, to become a guardian of one of our banded and released (and adorable) owls!
