Recently I was tasked with finding a safe location that met a slew of requirements for the release of two rehabilitated Burrowing Owls. Wicked cool. But after hours and hours of time, I wasn't feeling so lucky. I remembered the trusty maps and write- ups. And there was the solution right in the BBA2. Plus a laugh when I realized that the BUOL species account was writen by one of my mentors, Steve Jones. Doh! Steve discusses the major changes that have occurred in the distribution and population of the BUOL breeding in Colorado. And along with Maikel and Luke Pheneger, we found a perfect release site for the two now healthy Owls.
It's my go to book whenever I'm wondering if populations have changed.
