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.
In 2018, we were able to capture and band five owlets from this box.
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.
All of the Owlets have fledged this box for the 2018 season, but some can still be seen on top of the box after dark, as they continue to be fed by their parents.
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.
