Zion National Park
The main objective of this study is to estimate the distribution, habitat use, and reproductive status of Mexican spotted owls (Strix occidentalis lucida) in Zion National Park. This information will allow managers to coordinate park activities that potentially conflict with nest sites, roost sites, or brood rearing habitats. Other objectives of this study are to estimate spotted owl food habits and fledgling success, and to compare these findings with other North American spotted owl populations.
