Migration of Wyoming’s Burrowing Owls across North America

Join the Wyoming Game and Fish, Red Desert Audubon Society and the Lander Library for a presentation by Andrea Orabona, a non-game bird biologist for the state of Wyoming. She will be discussing the migration of Wyoming’s burrowing owls across North America and how biologists trap and track burrowing owls to identify their migration routes and wintering areas using satellite transmitters.

Andrea collaborated on this project with colleague Dr. Courtney Conway from the University of Idaho and his research partners from the U.S, Canada, and Mexico. The burrowing owl is classified as a species of greatest conservation need in Wyoming, making this full life-cycle conservation project extremely important. Andrea will discuss the need for this work, project objectives, and methods, and results of burrowing owl migration thus far.
