The Thrill of Barn Owl Nest Boxes
Barn owls never cease to excite me. Sure, the archetypical owl in popular culture (i.e., Winnie the Pooh and the Tootsie Roll Pop commercials) is a wise yet somewhat boring bird. But that’s not the whole story. Because owls are nocturnal, they have a reputation for staying put and being quiet. You won’t see or hear much from them during the day, but that’s because they are fierce rodent ninjas at night.
Barn Owls Hunt For Their Pray
If you have barn owls in your yard, you’ll probably have the opportunity to see one hunt. I can’t recommend this experience enough. You’ll see the barn owl hone in on its prey, get ready to attack, then spread its wings and swoop in for its meal.
Even when they’re sleeping, there’s a magical sense of exhilaration you get just *knowing* that you’re in the presence of these creatures. When you know and fully grasp the fact that you’re sharing a space with some of the most finely-tuned birds of prey on the planet, you’ll feel excited every time you enter your barn.
And the best part of all: when your friends and family see your nest boxes and ask you about them, you can share your excitement with them. The excitement is contagious.
