Birds 'n Bites - Owls of Yellowstone

Regular Events
Jan 18, 2022 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Please join us via Zoom on Tuesday, January 18, at  7:00 PM for a presentation by Katy Duffy about the  Owls of Yellowstone. During this presentation, we learn about owls and their habitat preferences in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Duffy discusses the owls found in Yellowstone National Park and plays the vocalizations of male owls as they advertise for mates in  the winter and spring. Katy Duffy has studied owls since 1979. She has a master  bird banding permit and has banded nearly 5,000 owls,  mostly during fall migration in Cape May, New Jersey, but  also in Wyoming and Montana. For the past 24 years she  has conducted surveys for vocalizing owl species during  late winter and spring in Yellowstone and Grand Teton  National Parks as well as the Gallatin National Forest.  

Duffy has an MS in ecology from Rutgers University and  worked for the National Park Service in Yellowstone and  Grand Teton National Parks for 32 years. She continues to  volunteer hundreds of hours each year for Yellowstone’s  bird program.
