    The range map above indicates that this owl:
  1. Can exist in the entire shaded area where suitable habitat exists.
  2. Is common in the Interior, Southcentral, and South-west regions of the state.
  3. Is uncommon on the North Slope.
  4. Becomes rare near the start of the panhandle.
  5. Is very rarely seen in Southeast and probably does not breed there.

Owls only live within their range where suitable habitat exists.

These ranges are year-round except for the Short-eared Owl which migrates south in winter.
