Now you can enjoy the process of putting one of these Barred Owl boxes together with your own hands. This is a great project to do with children to get them involved with outdoor projects. You can have the satisfaction of a product you made hanging in your yard for your friends and family to see. Not only having the handmade kit hanging up, it also gives you the chance to enjoy having wildlife in your backyard!
Our Barred Owl Nesting Box is a great way to invite Barred Owls to your home. The 7-inch entrance hole of the Barred Owl Nesting Box is semicircle in shape to allow for easy access in and out for Barred Owls. Additionally, this Barred Owl Box is designed as one room, which allows the owls to easily nest inside. This nesting box 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.
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 predators.
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.
26.5" H x 13" W x 15" D including the 2 overhanging roof); Hole Diameter: 7" x 7"; Hole Height Above Floor: 7"; Weight: 23 lbs. The box has been treated with natural linseed oil on the exterior to help protect the wood.
Exterior Grade Plywood
Note: Ships dimensional oversized. Additional freight may be required depending on order size and destination zone.
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 inches 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.
This nesting box also comes with included stainless steel mounting screws for easy installation of our newly designed mounting system. Two mounting strips will also come attached to your barn owl box, along with a separate mounting strip loose in the box to attach to your preferred mounting location.
Where Should I Put My Box? 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. Barred Owls are also territorial, so multiple boxes should be at least mile apart as well as away from human areas like homes in order to avoid conflict.

The Barred Owl sounds like a typical "hoot owl." It is slightly larger than the Barn Owl and lives in low, wet woods, but also in suburban areas.
