2015 Idaho and Utah Short-eared Owl Survey Results

In 2015 I had the honor of leading, on behalf of the Idaho Bird Conservation Partnership and the Intermountain Bird Observatory, an Idaho and Utah State-wide initiative to survey for Short-eared Owls. We recruited 128 volunteer citizen scientists to spread out across the region and implement a consistent protocol. Here is an extended presentation of the results (~40 minutes) including rationale, objectives, methods, results, and next steps.  It was a fantastic project and I look forward to next year.
