Conservation Biology

Joe Schmutz studied hawks near Hanna, Alberta for over 30 years. He has focussed on the Ferruginous Hawk and the Swainson's Hawk. He has interacted extensively with ranchers who have helped raise the Ferruginous Hawk from threatened status in Canada. He has also studied the Swainson's Hawk and the Burrowing Owl in his long term study area south of Hanna, Alberta. One of the many "artificial nests" he has erected for hawks is shown at the right.
