Through a friendly neighbor, we had the good fortune to meet a gentleman with a one man lumber mill that likes to make bird houses. He gifted us 34 assorted houses made of everything from oak to black walnut. They should last a long time.
Lots of blue bird houses, a couple for barn owls (they were heavy!), two for kestrels, swallows, nut hatches and a wood duck house (also very heavy).
While checking the game cameras we saw this little guy in one of the Kestrel houses. I believe that it is a Western Screech Owl.
No Spotted owls have been (or will be) spotted!
It would be nice if we had pygmy owls
, but we are too far North.
Or Elf owls
, They are really cute.
Do you think the person who built you this Owl house - would be interested in making another for sale? I love the look of it!ReplyDelete
I will ask, but they are very heavy and would be costly to ship. Those are 1"+ boards. I can send dimensions & close-ups & they wouldn't be too hard to build.Delete
Truly beautiful house- I'm going to be making one, which is what brought me to your site, but they won't be this beautiful. Awesome!ReplyDelete
Sure it will! Just pick up a rough cut board. It's all straight cuts. These weather out to a nice grey color in about a year.ReplyDelete
