Screech Owl Nest Box Work
September 21, 2010
I did a little fall cleaning of the Screech Owl nesting box over the weekend.
I put in new wood chips, and then got the miniature video-cam working again and trained on the entire floor of the box.
I don't expect to see an owl in the box for at least another month -- and possibly not until early December -- but I will check the box regularly to make sure there is no squirrel activity.
Secret to successful screech owl boxes: As soon as you detect a squirrel using the box, evict it immediately. Rinse and repeat.
