Polish Owls Atlas is a publication in progress, in which we want to summarize the knowledge of population sizes and distributions of owls in Poland for the years 1995 - 2017. Records for the atlas are collected via an online database, available at www.atlas.sowy.sos.pl. We are interested in all owl findings, both during breeding season and off it. We are also interested in discoveries of carcasses and others traces of residence, like  feathers, pellets, etc. We encourage you to sign in our database and share your observations.
