Who's Whoo-ing: Study Suburban Owls


We know that owls live in nature preserves, but do they live in residential areas (like your backyard) in-between? Join researchers from the Mianus River Gorge Preserve (Bedford, N.Y.), in a study to map owl habitat in our suburban environment.

We are enlisting residents from New York's Westchester, Putnam, and Fairfield Counties as “citizen scientists” to collect data on screech and barred owls in their backyard using “call playback surveys.” This data will be used to find out where these owls live, if they co-occur, and what habitats and areas they tend to live in or avoid.
