It's the fall kick off of the Montana Migration project so Owl Researcher Matt Larson is back to keeping owl hours! In order to capture, band and record data on this Project, Larson starts his work when the rest of us are getting ready to call it a day...just like the owls do. If you've ever wondered what it's like to be an owl researcher, this video will give you a good, and very quick idea!
To date, The Owl Research Institute has captured over 70 Northern Saw-whet Owls. Despite the number of bands, recaptures are rare. Over time, however, a collection of data can help us understand the patterns and movements of Northern Saw-whet Owls and perhaps identify important habitats.
