Program: “The Central Ohio Owl Project”
Presenter: Blake Mathys, Ohio Dominican University
Date & Time: Tuesday, May 4, 2021 at 7:30 PM
Description: Gaining a better understanding of Ohio’s owls is a goal of Ohio Dominican University ornithologist Blake Mathys. Last fall he launched the Central Ohio Owl Project, but his research actually extends beyond the title, as Mathys will accept owl reports from anywhere in the state.
The Central Ohio Owl Project is slated to continue for the next several years. Mathys’ end game is to develop a clearer picture of the status and distribution of owls, and he is also gathering data on diet. Owls regurgitate indigestible fur and bone of victims in the form of compact pellets, which can often be found under roosts. Dissecting and analyzing pellet contents reveals prey choices. The more we learn about our owls, the better we can conserve these charismatic animals. View Dr. Mathys' website at blakemathys.com.
