Dr. Matt Johnson, Professor in the Wildlife Department at Humboldt State University, will speak on Barn Owls. He and his graduate students have been studying barn owls in wine-grape vineyards since 2015. His talk will focus on what his students and he have learned about barn owls nesting in boxes on Napa’s vineyards. In particular, he’ll describe what types of boxes designs, placements, and habitats can best attract barn owls, where they spend most of their time hunting, and how many and what types of rodents they kill. He’ll conclude by discussing relations between barn owls and people. His Zoom presentation will last approximately 45 minutes with additional time for questions and answers.
