Brood division and postnesting behavior of Flammulated Owls


Linkhart, Brian D.; Reynolds, Richard T. 1987. Brood division and postnesting behavior of Flammulated Owls. Wilson Bulletin. 99(2): 240-243.

The Flammulated Owl (Otus flammeolus) is widely distributed in the montane forests of western North America (Bent 1938). The owl is insectivorous (Ross 1969) and is presumed to be migratory in the northern part of its range (Balda et al. 1975). Little is known of the nesting behavior of this species, especially during the postfledging period. Here, we present the postfledging behavior of adults and young and describe the occurrence of brood division in Flammulated Owls.

Keywords: Flammulated Owl, Otus flammeolus, brood, nesting
