UnDisciplined: what makes burrowing owls choose to stay when they’ve been relocated?
What kind of creature has golden yellow eyes, flies, and lives in the ground? This week on Undisciplined we’re talking about burrowing owls. These birds have a wide range, but they’ve suffered from human development changing their habitat. However, a group of researchers have studied the relocation of these birds and have interesting insights on how to successfully find them new places to live.
At the time this research was conducted, Dr. Sarah Hennessy was a postdoc and researcher at San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance. Currently she is an Associate Ecologist for the U.S. Forest Service.
