It's Breeding Season!
Spring is here, which means the start of our busy field season! We're out in the field searching for breeding pairs of Great Gray Owls, following Northern Pygmy Owls as they select nesting cavities, searching the fields for Short-eared Owls, and more!
We're also keeping an eye on our neighborhood Great Horned Owls, who are currently raising their chicks right next door to our office in Charlo! Check out the Great Horned Owls and all our other Live Cams:

Great Gray Owls & Snag Data for Forest Management
Snags are a critical component of forest ecosystems and provide homes for a myriad of species. Again and again, we find them removed from otherwise ideal Great Gray habitat.
