OwlWatch 2018 - OctoBox

Barred Owls are large owls that go by many names. Swamp Owl, Hoot Owl, and Wood Owl just to name a few.

We are lucky enough to share our space with a pair of Barred Owls that have grown to tolerate us. They seem to feel secure nesting within 30 feet of our house. We try to respect them and don't have any pets or domestic animals to complicate their life.

Over the years you will see we have recorded their life in various ways including written logs, video and stills. We enjoy their calls and visits. This site is an attempt to share that joy.

We hope to expand this content as time goes on.
