Description

Western Screech-owls pair bonding in their nest box. Male only entered the box with the brooding female with a prey item. Vocalizations are too cool. Both times I saw this behavior the male left with the prey item. The 5 eggs were recently laid.

    I just put up two boxes and they showed up. It took a few years. I targeted screech owls and got lucky.
