    The article examines the migration behavior of birds like the sharp-shinned hawks and saw-whet owls. It is said that over 13,000 migrating sharp-shinned hawks were reported from 1974 to 2009. The timeline is said to have shifted to later fall migration. However, there is no general pattern that...

    We used a 13-year time series of abundance estimates of breeding Northern Saw-whet Owls ( Aegolius acadicus), and of small mammals from central Ontario, Canada, to assess the numerical response of the owls to small-mammal prey species. We found that the finite rate of increase of breeding owls...
