Bringing Back the Burrowing Owl 10/21/21

from Golden Gate Audubon
Bringing Back the Burrowing Owl  Thursday, October 21 via Zoom — 7 p.m.
Doug Bell and Shawn Smallwood
Once thriving in the East Bay, the Burrowing Owl has been forced to move inland and the consequences for many have been fatal. Conducting long-term research on these colonies, Shawn Smallwood and Doug Bell have observed the rate of mortality for Burrowing Owls living within the Altamont Pass Wind Resource Area, as wind turbines within the area continue to contribute to avian bird deaths. During this presentation they will speak on their findings and the management efforts being conducted on East Bay Regional Park District lands, including volunteer-based habitat restoration programs.
