Barred Owl Box Kit
This Product is oversized - extra shipping charges will apply.
The Barred Owl Nesting Box is a great way to entice these amazing birds to set up their home on your property. The 7-inch entrance hole of the Barred Owl Box is semi-circled in shape to allow for easy access in and out for Barred Owls. Additionally, this box is designed as one room, which allows the owls to easily nest inside. It is also designed with an overhanging roof that reaches 2 inches over the front of the box, which allows additional protection from the elements for your owls. ASSEMBLY REQUIRED
Special "grip" grooves on the outer front section of the box underneath the entrance hole help the adult owl gain access to the box. No perches exist outside of the box as they could provide convenient perches for predators or for young owlets, thus exposing them to predation.
A door on the side of the box allows for easy access to the interior - making clean out a simple and quick task. All you would need is to open the door labeled Clean Out and easily replace the wood shavings inside. This side door also provides easy access to mount a wildlife camera in the box, so you can enjoy viewing your own young owlets during their growth process.
Nesting Material: Although Barred Owls can and will find their own nesting materials, two bags of pine shavings are included with your Barred Owl Nesting Box. Adding 3-4 of shavings to the floor of the box when mounting will make the box more appealing to the Barred Owl. If you need to replace the nesting material, pine shavings are the safest option.
Natural Finish: This nesting box has been treated with natural linseed oil on the exterior to help protect the wood. No paint or varnish should be applied to the interior. Use of these finishes on the interior of the Box could deter Barred Owls from nesting.
Box Installation: Barred Owls generally prefer mixed forests of large trees, often near water sources where there will be diversity in food sources. The Barred Owl generally eats many different types of small animals, including squirrels, chipmunks, mice, voles, rabbits, and small birds (up to the size of a grouse) along with amphibians, reptiles, and invertebrates.
