Screech Owl nest box

This is the box where the following pics were taken.  Plans for this box can by found here. I modified the plans by cutting the top sides at an angle allowing the roof to slope down and by making the roof slightly larger to provide more overhang in the front and on the sides.

It is about ten feet in the tree.

You can see a close-up of this nestbox here.

Growing babies require food.  Note the headless mice in the corners.  There are also parts of crawfish.

Four big babies.  Two of them are red phase and two of them are grey phase.

A new year for the Screech Owls. Exactly a year to the day that I first found an owl in this box last year.  Earlier in the year I found a dead owl in the box and some leaves.  Hopefully another mate was found and they will raise another clutch here.

Earlier eggs than last year.
