Owls of Maine

Updated: Mar 14

Wednesday, April 24, 6:00 – 7:30 PM (Free)



Also open to the members of Friends of Aroostook National Wildlife Refuge

             

The Maine Owl Pellet Project (MOPP) is a collaboration between the University of New England, the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, and the United States Fish and Wildlife Service. By engaging the public and promoting crowdsourced science, the project aims to better understand both the diet of Maine’s owls and the distribution and composition of the small mammal community, including the threatened northern bog lemming on which they prey. But the Maine Owl Pellet Project needs your help to connect us with pellets!  Instructor Bill Sheehan will talk about the Owls of Northern Maine, their preferred habitats, and how to locate roosting spots where pellets might be found here in the county.  Mael or his staff will present the goals and protocols of collecting owl pellets for the project.


Instructors: Bill Sheehan grew up in northern Maine and has been birding in the county for almost 40 years. "I am the past president of the Aroostook Birders and recently enjoyed seeing Aroostook County's first-ever Townsend's Solitaire in Caribou." and Mael Glon, Ph.D., is an Endangered Species Biologist, Ecological Services  https://sites.une.edu/maine-owl-pellet-project/
