A mama Barred Owl has set up residence in our owl nest box again this year. Jim Carpenter, President & CEO of Wild Birds Unlimited, has hosted a camera-equipped owl box in his backyard for many years and it's time to check in on this year's residents. This year he placed a plexiglass top on the box for better lighting and an infrered light for night time viewing.
Mama moved into the box in early March. She laid the first egg on March 7, the second one on March 9 and egg number three arrived on March 12. If all goes well, we can expect the owlets to hatch in mid-April and they'll leave the nest by late May.
