Picking out a house

We put up a Screech owl box a few weeks ago, hoping on getting a owl I had seen a few times. Well for two days in a row a Starling was seen flicking out the shavings from inside the box. This made me upset :( and yesterday I noticed this young guy checking it out. Then within a half hour, I think the correct tenet occupied the box.      Lauren

No! Mr Owl not my cardinal   :/

  1. Wow, thats not just an Owl box its a condo, not surprising there where so many viewers on open house day ;-), and I would be more than pleased when the Owl actually move in, lets hope the other half moves in too.
    All the best Gordon.

    1. Certainly hopeful he move in and finds a mate. Hav'nt seen him for several days, guess he is camera shy. I must look like the paparazzi. lol

  2. Interesting and great photos :-) Pictures of Owl which looks through "the window" of boxes are funny.
