Screech Owl House
Screech Owl Range
Screech owls prefer
abandoned woodpecker holes at the edge of a field
or neglected orchard. They will readily take to a
box lined with an inch or two of wood shavings.
If you clean the box out in late spring after the
young owls have fledged, you may attract a second
tenant--a kestrel. Trees isolated from larger
tracts of woods have less chance of squirrels
taking over the box.
