Last Push For Owls


Great Horned Owls enter OBBA II safe dates on December 20th, however,
many individuals begin courtship by November. In addition, some early Barred Owl pairs can start to duet in late December. For those of you participating in Christmas Bird Counts (CBC), this is a great opportunity to obtain new records for owls. That said, please don’t wait for a CBC to get started. With help from several regional owl coordinators, we plan to survey priority blocks lacking records of these owls from now to 31 December, and we need your help. This is our last (but not least!) push for field data collection in OBBA II, so please get in touch with us and we can direct you to a Regional Owl Coordinator. Visit our owling 2011 page to get information on where you can help put owls on the map.

Thanks for all of your help throughout the Atlas.
