Edmonton Nature Club Bird Study: Owl’s of Alberta

Saw-whet Owl

March 18 at 7 PM

Speaker: Sara Pearce Meijerink, Head Biologist and Geoff Holroyd, Chair, Beaverhill Bird Observatory

Eleven species of owls occur regularly in Alberta. In this presentation, Sara will talk about the variety of species, their ecology and habitats. Geoff will present the highlights of 20+years of satellite telemetry on three species of owls, describing their movements within and beyond Alberta’s borders. BBO has been banding Northern Saw-whet Owls for almost 20 years and has many band recoveries that demonstrate the varied migrations of this species. This talk will go from general information to detailed life history of Alberta’s owls. Geoff will add a few notes about other BBO-supported studies of Burrowing Owls in Mexico, Little Owls in Spain and Black-banded/Black-and-white Owls in Ecuador.
