Barn Owls Making a Comeback in Ohio

Barn owls are making a comeback in Ohio, and more people every year have the pleasure of witnessing these beautiful birds. They are often observed during summer months when adults are actively feeding nestlings in barns, silos, and similar structures. We rely on reports of barn owl nests to help track population trends for this state threatened species. If you observe or receive a report of an active barn owl nest, please report it at or call 1-800-WILDLIFE (945-3543).
