Support My Research
In 2014, as an undergraduate, I began to study the Northern Saw-whet Owl (Aegolius acadicus). Now as a PhD student studying owl dispersal in general, it continues to be one of my focal species. So far, research efforts have shown this secretive owl occurs regularly during fall migration and winter in northwest Arkansas, where it was previously considered a rare vagrant. There are still several research goals I want to accomplish. These include remote monitoring of the species elsewhere in the region, delving deeper into why we mostly capture females, and examining potential health consequences of ectoparasite infection.
I am grateful for the selfless contributions that will aide in continuing this research and ultimately the conservation of this poorly understood species.
