Description

Our urban, backyard nest box yielded an animated brood of Eastern Screech-Owls. Once the owlets were big enough to climb up and peek out of the nest box opening and take up most of the room in the box, the parents started spending their afternoons dozing in trees etc. nearby. One day we discovered the female snoozing on our window ledge about 10 feet from the tree with the nest box in it – close enough to keep an eye on the nest but far enough away for some peace and quiet!
