Bob is putting together a training lecture to teach volunteer field observers how to use the Burrowing Owl survey protocol in the field. He's in need of pictures of male, female and juvenile birds as well as birds in different types of habitat that show a variety of burrow locations like along drainage ditches in the Imperial Valley to fairly intact grasslands or sparse desert scrub areas.
For more information on this study, please visit the Institute's Burrowing Owl Project page. If you live in California and can participate in the survey or have photos to contribute to the training lecture, please contact Bob. His information is below. This is a great opportunity to help in the survival of the Burrowing Owl, and you'll also get a nice credit if your photo is used.
