This lively presentation has two parts: first an overview of the Global Owl Project, then an examination of the wonderful world of the Burrowing Owl in western North America. The Global Owl Project has 450 people working on the science and conservation of owls in 65 countries. The focus of the work is on owl surveys, genetics, vocalizations, morphology, distribution mapping, owls in human myth and culture, and on dissemination of findings - for all of the owls on Earth. There have been significant new findings about the winter
movements of Burrowing Owls from Oregon and Washington, and these are offered along with a fuller review of the fascinating ecology of this beautiful owl.
