Building Owl Boxes

When it comes to the many owls on the ranch, which Miss Kitty loves to sit and watch, I am the one who prefers the branch to be long. We have screech owls and barn owls and horned owls all around. When we found a family nesting in our shed, we started building owl boxes.

The plans we use to build our owl boxes, were obtained from the Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society’s website, a .pdf file called, “Build a Barn Owl Box Modeled after an Original Design by Steve Simmons.” Here is a link: Build a Barn Owl Box Modeled after an Original Design by Steve Simmons.
