This owl has been roosting in boxes on our property each winter for the last 4 years. Hoping he’ll settle down and bring a mate this spring!

Built a Owl Box October 2017, Placed it on a Pine Tree in our Yard, approx 13′ Up. Within a months time a Screech Owl took residency. It’s now March 2018 a lot of mating calls come from our Screech Owl. Disappeared for two days. This morning our Hootie is back in its hole looking out. Hope to have some babies owls.
We watch every morning and night.

Eastern Screech Owl Nest with 2 owlets being fed

I am very fortunate to have a pair of eastern screech owls nesting in my backyard. Using my shed as a blind I set up at night at 830pm to take some videos of mom coming in to feed the owlets.

Enjoy seeing the 2 owlets fed worms and grubs.

Eastern Screech Owl Nest with 2 owlets

I had the amazing view of watching 2 eastern screech owlets from my backyard. I had watched the parents feeding the babies and next thing I knew they had fledged to the big tree in my yard.

What a thrill.
This photo is early the second morning where both owls were on the same branch.

Patio friend

I had some Eastern Screech Owls nest in my patio, three to be exact. Parents Dewey and Darcy, both red morphs always stayed close by, but in this video, Dora, the eldest flew the nest during the day. She decided to rest for the evening of flying attempts by napping on my patio chair. We just chatted it up and enjoyed the lovely spring weather.

Every year eastern screech owls use this wood duck nest box to raise their young. This year there are 3 fledglings. The adult male is always nearby in a southern cedar tree.

Owl in a Box

In addition to birds, I put up a nest box for squirrels last year and I thought one was looking out at me today so I took its picture. When I looked closer, I found I was looking at an owl.
