This box was placed on City of Loveland property, in Colorado, in 2016.

In 2017, a pair of Barn Owls nested in this box and raised a single owlet.

Owls have been seen at and in the box beginning on 11 April 2018.

Barn Owls that use our boxes feed primarily upon voles, The male of this pair, however, has been bringing several young rabbits to the female. As with our other Barn Owls, voles are an important part of their diet and we will begin to see the male bringing more voles, as he depletes the rabbit population.

The camera on the left is the inside of the box and the camera on the right is the view of the top of the nest box.

 

The female laid her first egg on 24 April around 12:47 p.m.

Second Egg was laid on 26 April at 1:55 p.m.

Third Egg was laid on 28 April at 5:23 p.m.

Fourth Egg  was laid on 1 May at 1:49 p.m.

Fifth Egg was laid on 3 May at 11:40 a.m.

Sixth egg was laid on 5 May at 2:58 p.m.

 

We would like to thank Rise Broadband, and the city of Loveland Colorado for their contribution with enabling these cameras to be viewed on line.
