Abstract. Because of the difficulty of watching nocturnal animals such as owls, few data are available on their behavior. Nicholls and Warner (1972) used radiotelemtry to study the Barred Owl (Strix varia). This paper reports a radiotelemetry study of the movements, activity, and home range of a Saw-shet Owl (Aegolius acadicus) for a 20-day period on the 5000-acre Cedar Creek Natural History Area approximately 30 miles north of Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Keywords. saw-whet owl, Aegolius acadicus, radiotelemetry, home range
