Weekend Activity: Build a Nest Box for Screech Owls



Need a winter project? Consider building a nest box for screech owls! These owls are fairly common, permanent residents in Ohio. You may not see them often, but you might hear their song – an eerie, trembling wail and a soft trill. Preferred habitat for these owls includes mixed stands of deciduous forest on the edge of woods adjacent to fields or wetlands. Boxes should be placed at least 10 feet high.
