If you locate a potentially active territory, please contact MRF as soon as possible (preferably the same day). To minimize the risk of disturbance, please do NOT approach a potential nest site to determine whether a nest is present. If you are interested in searching a large area, please contact MRF for information on priority areas in your region.
Project coordinator Leslie Hunt can be reached at email@example.com. Please make note of the date, time, and location of any observations, as well as a brief description of any behaviour observed. If known, property ownership information would also be very helpful.

2003/04 and 2004/05:
Casual sightings of Short-eared Owls can be reported as they occur, to Debbie Badzinski. Be sure to record the date and time of sighting, the number of birds, and the location (as precisely as possible).
In addition, we are looking for volunteers to monitor local owl populations on a regular (weekly) basis throughout the winter to help us assess the dynamics of the overwintering population. To participate, please contact Debbie Badzinski or Susan Debreceni for further details and for data sheets.
