About This Project

The presence of Flammulated Owls indicates ecosystem health in the Rocky Mountains. In the fall, "flams" leave their northern breeding grounds to over-winter in Central America, relying on islands of pine forest to sustain them along the way. Researchers still don't know exactly where these stopover habitats are. GPS devices attached to individual flams show precise locations of migratory birds during their fall and spring migration.
