Photo of the Month - Barn Owl Boxes

Photo of the Month - Barn Owl Boxes

Before building my barn owl boxes I consulted the BTO who had carried out extensive research to produce the best design and construction specifically for barn owls. The result was two state of the art boxes made of best marine ply using stainless steel screws, having an optimum sized roosting chamber, exercise platform and felted roof. The boxes can be seen on the right of the picture.

So why has the barn owl on the left of the picture chosen my old tawny owl box with a leaking roof?

Obviously the BTO did not ask this owl for its opinion!
