  1. I would love to have barn owls around. How very fortunate yo are to have the property you do and the potential for so much more. Keep us posted on the barn owl story, and maybe some pictures !

  2. I hope it works out for you! I look forward to hearing how it does… Maybe we’ll have to try it out sometime. Our barn upstairs is all sealed though, but maybe they’ll nest outside??

  3. Yes, they will nest outside. You can put up nest boxes on the outside/inside of barns, in trees, on top of tall posts, etc. We are going to put 2 in the barn and 1 on top of a telephone pole that we left in the ground from one of the barns.

  4. I hope they do come. They are such unusual but pretty birds. I know they would help keep your mice population down. We have some that I sometime see crossing over the freeway at night, don’t know where they are headed but I enjoy seeing them briefly. There is a much smaller version of an owl looking bird called an Owl finch. They have the same black barring at the neck area. I always wanted a mating pair of them.

  5. I have seen them flying across the road in our valley on my way to work in the morning. I need to get some next boxes up! Keep us posted…
