Description

This project needs citizen scientists to report any owls they see or hear in Massachusetts.

Participants can easily report their discoveries on the project's online Owl Reporter form. This online mapping tool allows volunteers to enter as many owl sightings as they want through a single sign-in. The tool also allows citizen scientists to pinpoint the exact locality of an owl without having to give an address or written description.

These reports provide valuable information about the owl population in Massachusetts. Your contributions will even help out other citizen science projects, such as the Breeding Bird Atlas project and Snowy owl research.

Whoooo knew citizen science could be so awesome!?
