Owl Research Workshop March 3 (02/23/2006)
Whether you're a researcher yourself, a high school or college student, a birder, or someone who is really interested in owls, you won't want to miss the Owl Research Workshop at the Festival of Owls on Friday, March 3rd.

There will be an excellent lineup of six different research presentations, with time for questions and discussion. The presenters and their topics are as follows:

Survey Techniques for Owls by David H. Johnson, Executive Director, Global Owl Project, Alexandria, Virginia

Changes in some Great Gray Owl Hunting Techniques and Prey Choices During Irruption by Laura Johnson, author, Staff Ornithologist, Binoculars.com, Duluth, Minnesota

Natural History of the Spotted Owl by Eric Forsman, Wildlife Biologist, USDA Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Research Station, Corvallis, Oregon (If you know owls, you'll know that Eric is probably the preeminent Spotted Owl biologist in North America.)

Western Great Lakes Region Owl Monitoring: a summary of the 2005 surveys and goals for a long-term survey by David Grosshuesch, Hawk Ridge Bird Observatory, Duluth, Minnesota

Backyard Invaders - Saw-whet Migrations by Greg Munson, Teacher/Director, Quarry Hill Nature Center, Rochester, Minnesota

Vocal Behavior of the Great Horned Owl: Initial Observations by Karla Kinstler, Director/Naturalist, Houston Nature Center, Houston, Minnesota

Please note the change in time from the original schedule: the workshop will be held from noon-4:30 PM. Cost to attend the workshop is $5/person, and pre-registration is required. Location will depend on number of registered participants, but there will be signs around Houston directing to the final location. (Don't worry, Houston isn't big! You'd have to try really hard to get lost.)

To register, go to www.houstonmn.com/owlfest.htm and print out a pre-registration form and mail it in with your payment to the Houston Nature Center, as directed on the form. For more information, contact the Houston Nature Center at 507-896-HOOT (4668) or nature@acegroup.cc.
