Gave the owlets backpacks to track them after fledging. 3. Owls communicate somewhat with visual cues as shown by the research done. Method: Provide a short description of the subjects: Eagle Owls are nocturnal creatures that have white feathers near their mouths. How did the researchers gather data: Artificially changed the brightness of the white feathers on the Eagle Owls mouths.
