A wildlife rehabilator who has helped me with my burrowing owl habitat projects is arriving late tommorrow to home these birds at my place , so I will be busy tommorrow hanging thier new residences under the eaves of the house .

Two nights ago had two barn owls visit the property , as delighted as I was to hear them I hope that they do not return too often and predate on the burrowing and the screech owls . Both of which represent prey to the barn owls . Wish the new occupants luck .

Thanks for the photo. I wish we still had eastern screech owls close by. They're so cool to listen to but the habitat is gone. Instead there are hundreds of townhomes. Good luck w the project.
