Description: Spotted owls (Strix occidentalis) were monitored on 11 National Forests in the Pacific Northwest Region of the USDA Forest Service between March and August of 1987. The basic intent of monitoring was to provide estimates of occupancy and reproduction rates for pairs of spotted owls. This paper documents the technical details of the statistical estimation procedures used to produce all the estimates resulting from that effort. All relevant formulae are presented as well as decisions made about collapsing strata to estimate variances. Some complicating aspects of the monitoring effort are also discussed.

Keywords: Spotted owl, Strix occidentalis, sampling, stratified random sampling, monitoring
