Subject: [obol] Short-eared Owl community science volunteer opportunity in Oregon
The Klamath Bird Observatory is partnering with Intermountain Bird
Observatory to carry out the *Western **Asio Flammeus **Landscape Study
(WAfLS)*
<https://www.avianknowledgenorthwest.net/citizen-science/short-eared-owls>.
This community science project is the largest Short-eared Owl survey in the
world, currently spanning eight western states and is designed to gather
information to better evaluate the population status of
the Short-eared Owl. Volunteers will enjoy rural Oregon at twilight while
completing two road-based surveys during early spring. The surveys consist
of driving on secondary roads and stopping at 8 to 11 points to complete a
five-minute survey. Training material will be provided and *no experience
is necessary to volunteer*.
