Saw-Whet Owls and Screech Owls are much smaller than the Barn Owl and Barred Owl and find this owl nest box provides the perfect-sized cavity, complete with wood chips for nesting material. Extra chips may be ordered from the "Add to Cart" box or at any time from our Accessories page.
Owl box measures 17-3/4" high by 9-1/4" wide by 11" deep. The sloping, overhanging roof and drainage holes help keep the interior dry while the ventilation holes allow for air circulation.
The best location for the Saw-whet and Screech Owl House is 15' high on a post or tree. Providing a place for owls to nest will help increase the owl population, and because owls are voracious rodent eaters, control the rodent population at the same time.
September is a good time of year to clear out old nesting material from owl boxes. If you choose to clean out the owl house be sure to guard against hantavirus (carried by rodents) by using gloves and a dust mask.Habitat: Nests in deep woods, preferably near swamps. Likes coniferous woods and evergreen thickets in parks and gardens.
Range: Breeds from southeastern Alaska east across central Canada to Nova Scotia and south to southern California, Arizona, Illinois, the mountains of North Carolina and Connecticut. Winters in breeding range and south to Arkansas and North Carolina.
