It's here! Breeding season is upon us.
Each year, Great Horned Owls ring in the breeding season with their iconic hoots that fill the night sky. As the first species to breed in western Montana, we usually encounter the first nest in mid-February, with the rest of the owl species falling in line after this.
The breeding season is the most exciting time of year! Be sure to follow us on social media for all our latest updates! Also, check out our annual newsletter, The Roost, for all our 2020 project news!

JOIN US IN THE FIELD THROUGH OWL NOTES
Owl Notes are short films on the projects of Denver Holt and the Owl Research Institute. As a filmmaker, Daniel J. Cox of Natural Exposures, wanted to figure out how to bring people into the field and introduce them, firsthand, to the work of the Owl Research Institute and the wonderful subject of owls. Owl Notes is the result of this collaboration. Enjoy!
