Participants will explore Rocky Mountain National Park in search of 3-4 species of owls during the spring courtship and nesting season. Students will be listening for the vocalizations of Northern Pygmy, Northern Saw-whet, Flammulated, and Great Horned Owls. The group will head into the field well before dark as Pygmy Owls are diurnal which provides a great opportunity to get great looks at this species. After dark participants will listen for the other species and hopefully locate a nesting pair or two while seeing first-hand the habitats these species require. ♦♦ CSM credit available Meets at the Rocky Mountain Conservancy Field Institute
