Using DNA from blood and feathers, we screened twenty-four microsatellite primer pairs initially developed for six strigid owls, and four primer pairs shown to be polymorphic across avian taxa, for their utility in the Great Horned Owl Bubo virginianus, Shorteared Owl Asio flammeus and Snowy Owl B. scandiacus. Eight of these primers reliably amplified polymorphic fragments in the Great Horned Owl, eleven in the Short-eared owl, and ten in the Snowy Owl. Analyses of results from presumably
