Western Screech Owl

Thu ,19/04/2012

While monitoring the nest boxes at Bues pond this morning, I discovered this western Screech Owl has taken up residency in one of our wood duck nesting boxes. For as many years as we have had the boxes in that area, we have had one of these little gals as a tenant. Coincidentally, they have always chosen the plastic boxes over the wooden for their nesting period. During the wintering season, we will find evidence of them stashing food supply in the wooden boxes.
