    Description

    Practitioners have been using numerous methods to protect Burrowing Owls (Speotyto cunicularia hypugaea) affected by human activities. Primary approaches include protecting birds and burrows in place, allowing birds to relocate within their nesting territory, allowing birds to colonize new patches, moving birds within the geographic region and moving birds outside the geographic region. Very little data are readily available on most of these. Preliminary information indicates that methods which keep birds near nest burrows may be more successful than those in which birds are relocated outside nesting territories. Adequate monitoring is necessary when using these methods and more data are required to ascertain which conditions will produce successful breeding populations.
