I just wanted to add my 2c to Jim's post.


Want screech owls, bluebirds and other "neat" creatures?



BUILD NESTBOXES! Boxes attract all kinds of wildlife and make their lives better, and ours richer for the experiences. Take it from a guy who has built HUNDREDS!

We took my mother-in-law to see the bald eagle show at the mouth of the
Bluestone River yesterday afternoon. We had a good display with 2 adults
and at least 9 immature eagles.
Our screech owl that has been using the nest box appeared in the opening
and sat there for over an hour before it flew out for the evening. It has
been doing that for some time now. This morning, I noticed several wing
marks in the snow that appear to be about the right size for the owl.
