Mitigating Snowy Owl Aircraft Collisions by Relocations
Presenter: Rebecca McCabe, McGill University
Rebecca will present the results from her thesis chapter where she analyzed 20 years of relocation data from over 40 GPS-tagged snowy owls, captured at airports in North America, to determine what factors influence return rates.
Rebecca McCabe is a Ph.D. candidate at McGill University in Dr. Kyle Elliott’s Arctic Ecology lab. For her research Rebecca is using Project SNOWstorm’s dataset to link individual movements to population-level processes by focusing on various aspects of Snowy Owl winter ecology in North America. She is a research associate at Hawk Mountain Sanctuary and has been collaborating with other researchers and organizations on raptor-related projects since 2013.
All sessions will be presented on Zoom. Seminar time is given in Eastern Standard Time. Please adjust for your time zone. Note that Eastern Standard Time is 5:00 hours behind Coordinated Universal Time.
