New Barn Owl in Jim's Owl Box
After about a year with a vacant barn owl box we have new tenants.
Hopefully this year bees won't chase the owls away as they did last year.
Last year, after we evicted the bees, we sprinkled the box with Sevin dust, which is toxic to insects but not to birds.
The owls have been with us since at least Sunday March 3 when we last turned on the camera.
We have not yet been able to see eggs, probably because Mama Owl sits on them constantly.
Papa owl spends a lot more time in the box with Mama than last year's Papa did. He is a good Papa.
