"While my interest in natural history has added very little to my sum of achievement,
it has added immeasurably to my sum of enjoyment in life." - Theodore Roosevelt
All Programs Held at the Cold Spring Harbor Library Unless Otherwise Noted
A group of dedicated researchers wants to know more about the life of America’s cutest predator. Major goals of their studies are to observe behavior, habitat usage, and movements. When captured, all saw-whets are given a band on their leg to ID them, and some birds have been fitted with a transmitter which allows them to be radio-tracked using telemetry. The data collected from studies such as these not only helps us understand how animals survive, but helps to preserve land and resources that both animals and humans use.
Trudy Battaly, Drew Panko, and others have captured and banded saw-whet owls in Southern New York for their research since 2004. Starting in 2008 they began a more in-depth study of these owls in Bear Mountain and Harriman.
Join us at this event to find out more about their findings and what we can do to help.
