For those of you that having been asking about our barn-owl pair, they are still living in the barn. My husband built them on owl box, only to find out that they probably will not relocate until the Spring (when they start nesting)..... My goal is to place four owl boxes around the property. One box for every four acres. Natural control of mice/moles/rats. We have to hawk proof the chicken coop anyways... so no worries about the owls attacking future residents. Aren't they just the cutest?
