Forest Owls in the Chiricahua Mountains

Cavity nesting species, including small owls, play important roles in many ecosystems.  Many rely upon other animals (woodpeckers) or processes (rot and decay) to create the cavities that they shelter and breed in.  Despite being quite popular at the moment in popular culture, very little information exists on the breeding ecology and habitat relationships of many small owl species.  In fact, many small forest owl species are listed as ‘Species of Greatest Conservation Need’ in the State Wildlife Action Plans of many western U.S. states.

HawkWatch International is partnering with the Earthwatch Institute to address some of these questions and fill information gaps regarding the natural history of some owl species in two exciting locations in the western U.S.: The Chiricahua Mountains of southeastern Arizona and the Wasatch Mountains in northern Utah.
