Naturalist Nights 2017 | Scott Rashid
Scott will speak about his wide-ranging research interests concerning the tiny owls that inhabit the area in and around Rocky Mountain National Park. There have been many unanswered questions about the Northern Saw-whet, Northern Pygmy, Flammulated and Boreal Owls such as preferred nesting habitat, longevity, favored prey, and site fidelity. With his dedicated volunteers, banding station data and hands-on rehabilitation experience, Scott is increasing our understanding of these charismatic creatures.
