• What size owl nest box to get?


    My husband and I live in a slightly wooded area in Munson township.
    We have heard owls in our trees and would love to add an owl nesting box. Any ideas on what type we should get?
    We are between the smaller house for screech owls and the larger for barn owls.
    Thank you!

    I would definitely recommend the smaller box for Screech Owls, since we no longer have Barn Owls in Geauga. We have a healthy population of Screech Owls, and they readily take to boxes both for nesting in the spring and roosting in the winter.
