NORTHERN HAWK OWL
Is it a hawk or an owl? Is it an owl or a hawk?
For more than 25 years, the Owl Research Institute (ORI) has been dedicated to scientific research of owls — their ecology, natural history, and habitat relationships.
Because owls are chronically under-researched and poorly understood, we strive to provide high-quality, long-term studies of owls, and use our findings to promote conservation.

Our research station, the Ninepipes Center, is situated in the Mission Valley of western Montana. Surrounded by wildlife refuges, grasslands, and wetlands, the area is home to Grizzly Bears, American Bison, and record-setting numbers of raptors.
The Owl Research Institute is a non-profit, 501(c)3, tax-exempt organization (EIN 81-0453479), and primarily funded by grants from foundations, corporations, and individuals. Here are some things you can do to help us achieve our mission of wildlife conservation through research and education:
