Another great discussion today before heading out into the field.  We've started rescuing squirrels and moving them into acclimation facilities, and today we were just checking our traps.  On the way, we talked about how we would define success in these early stages of our project.  Here is what we decided:


1) Short term – squirrels captured, their acclimation to this area (are they comfortable?)
2) Long term – burrowing owls stay on preserve and produce and successfully raise offspring there
