Dr. Corey Scobie Presents at the RDRN Meeting.

       The Red Deer River Naturalists (RDRN) have a monthly speaker. On Feb. 25 we listened to Dr. Corey Scobie give a presentation on Burrowing owls.

      The population of burrowing owls has declined and Dr. Scobie has done research on the influence of human development on their nesting success.

     He found that the owls can use some human development to their advantage but that there is more to learn about their population decline. He's hooked on these owls and will do more research.
