DescriptionA female Flammulated Owl (Otus flammeolus), banded as a breeding adult on 14 Jul. 1981 in central Colorado, was last captured on 9 Jul. 1987. On the same study area, a male Flammulated Owl was banded as a nestling on 15 Jul. 1981 and was last recaptured at a nest 2.5 km distant from its natal site on 6 Jul. 1989. These establish the longevity for females at a minimum of 7 yr 1 mo and for male Flammulated Owls at 8 yr 1 mo.
