DescriptionUsing broadcasted conspecific calls, nest boxes, miniature-video cameras, a fiberoptic stratascope, and radio-telemetry, researchers from Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute conducted studies to assess the viability and profile the natural history of ferruginous pygmy-owls in Texas (Mays 1996, Proudfoot 1996a, Proudfoot and Beasom 1996, Proudfoot and Beasom 1997, Proudfoot and Radomski 1997). Techniques used were specifically designed or adapted to address the concerns of this species (e.g., minimizing risks of nest abandonment resulting from nest inspection). In this chapter, we summarize research methods used to study ferruginous pygmy-owls in Texas and provide current information regarding its status there.
