    Description

    The flammulated owl (Otus flammeolus) is a western mountain species associated mainly with ponderosa (Pinus ponderosa) and Jeffrey pine (Pinus jefferyi) forests in the United States and Canada (see Chapter 4). As a neotropical migrant, this small forest owl occurs on national forests in the United States during the breeding season and winters mainly south of the border but also in southern Texas, Arizona, and California. Based on the owl's documented distribution (see National Geographic Society 1987, Johnsgard 1988), it may occur on 89 National Forests across 6 Regions. To establish the management status of flammulated owls throughout its range we queried management personnel on all National Forests where the species is likely to occur.
