Eastern Screech-Owls are the most common owl species in North America, yet little is known about their habitat needs or population dynamics. To fill knowledge gaps – and get citizens involved in science linked to conservation – RMBO enlists volunteers to monitor Eastern Screech-Owls along the Cache la Poudre River in Fort Collins, Colorado.
Volunteers visit sites along the Poudre River from early March to late May to collect data on the presence of Eastern Screech-Owls, other owls and additional factors. The data contributes to our understanding of Eastern Screech-Owl populations along this important urban natural area and informs management and restoration of the Poudre River to benefit owls, other wildlife and people.
