Nesting Status

The 2016/2017 nesting season has ended.

Mrs Barred Owl entered the nestbox on Dec 31 2016, and the egg was spotted later that day.  This year 'Fire' and 'Spark' were hatched and left the nest to find a life out in the natural world.

Built in 2014 for the next season, this eight sided design is inspired by our love of the owls.

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.
