Wintering Owl Research in Central Ohio

Dr Blake Mathys from Ohio Dominican University has launched a project to document wintering owls in Ohio — and he could use your help.

The project will fill in gaps in our knowledge about overwintering owls in our area, with a focus on Northern Saw-whet, Long-eared, and Barn Owls. If you know of any of these species wintering nearby or on your property, please let Blake know. All reported owl locations will be kept strictly confidential.

For more information, or to reach Blake to report owls or just for questions. see the Owl Project pages at the Ohio Dominican website.
