Abstract We examined Burrowing Owl (Athene cunicuaria) reproductive success at 144 nests in urban (n  =  80) and grassland (n  =  64) habitats in southern New Mexico in 2000 and 2001. Nest success was higher in grassland compared to urban areas (81 vs. 68%) but urban landscapes fledged more young per successful nest (3.85 vs. 3.07). Mean fledging success per nest was similar between habitats with 2.60 and 2.50 fledglings in urban and grassland habitats, respectively. Fledging success was… CONTINUE READING
