Screech Owl Box Plans and Resources Available

by  / 1 Comment / Filed under News

Looking for a way to help local raptors?  Screech owls are cavity-nesting birds, but natural nest sites are often hard to come by.  You can help provide a place for screech owls to raise their young by building a nest box for them.  BBRR volunteer Fred Sauter has provided us with plans to show you how to construct such a box.  The plans also include tips on how to pole mount the box, and protect it from potential predators.Click here for plans.

Fred has also provided a list of resources to help you learn more about owls and provided habitat for all backyard wildlife.  You can down load a printable version here.

If you would like a copy of the nest box plans and/or list of resources mailed to you, please contact BBRR at information@bbrr.org.

  1. We found a pair of screech owls while cleaning out wood duck nests. One of the owls has a silver band on his leg. We are located on braddock bay. If you know who we can contact to find more information, I would appreciate it. Thank you, Becky
