Abstract

One adult and one juvenile were radio-tagged and tracked for several weeks during the rainy season in the summer of 1989. Owls exhibited a persistent tenacity for one relatively small foraging area, in which they also roosted during the day. Although the home ranges of both individuals were located in proximity to each other, little overlap occurred. These owls had home ranges considerably smaller (by a factor of 10 or more) when compared to other similarly sized owls in temperate zones. -from Authors
