Twenty-five Years of Late Nights and Wee Owls

Join DOAS on Friday, October 15, 2021 at 7:30pm for this special Keynote Presentation as part of our 54th Charter Anniversary Celebration!

For the past quarter-century, researcher and author Scott Weidensaul has overseen a major project to understand the migration of northern saw-whet owls in the central Appalachians, using a variety of techniques — banding, geolocators, radio telemetry, even radar and infrared cameras — to study their movements. After banding more than 12,000 owls, he and his colleagues have peeled back much of the mystery around this smallest of Eastern owls, but many questions still remain — and they’re not going to get a good night’s sleep in the fall any time soon.

This online program (via Zoom) is part of the DOAS 2021 Charter Celebration and is scheduled to begin promptly at 7:30pm. Pre-registration is required using the form at the bottom of this page.
