Annual Meeting and Short Eared Owls Talk with Dr. John Davis @ 1pm - 2:30pm

Audubon Society of the Capital Region, cordially invites to you to this year’s annual meeting. This meeting is where ASCR presents the sleight of nominees and an election is held for the 2019

season. Afterwards, speaker John Davis will present research on Short Eared Owls and their Habitat Preferences on the Montezuma Wetlands Complex (MWC). Since 2010, wetland and grass-

land sites within the MWC have been surveyed during the winter for the presence of raptors, including the Short-eared Owl (Asio flammeus), a winter visitor classified as endangered in New

York State. Aerial imagery and expert knowledge were used to refine and update previous ecological community maps, which were then combined with the raptor survey data and used to evaluate owl habitat use in detail. These results have important implications for habitat management and restoration in the MWC, and at other wetland locations managed for Short Eared Owls.

Saturday Februrary 23, 2019 begining at 1pm. 

Location: Peebles Island State Park, 1 Delaware Ave, Cohoes, NY 12047

This program is free and open to the public.
