NEON Volunteers on the Snowy Owl Project
Rachel Pernick and Mark Mullinger are researchers from the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON). When late spring conditions delayed their phenology monitoring (the reproductive timing of plants), they volunteered to help Denver with nest monitoring. As you can imagine, they were very excited to be able to peer into a nest of newly hatched Snowy Owl chicks!
Thanks for your assistance and these great photos, Rachel and Mark!
