Bosakowski and Smith's (2001) reply to my commentary reflects a fundamental difference in our views of what constitutes “nest-site selection” and a misunderstanding of why random points would have been inadequate for assessing this trait in one of my previous studies. Their study of Great Horned Owls (Bubo virginianus) focused on macrohabitat selection, whereas my study of Long-eared Owls (Asio otus) focused on nest-site selection as the term is generally applied by ornithologists.
