Screech Owl House
Screech Owl

The screech owl is the smallest of the four owl species that live in Florida. They occur in two distinct color phases, red and gray-brown. These differences in plumage seem to have no rhyme or reason. It is not related to age, sex, or season. In fact, both reds and grays can be found in the same brood. Their diet is also varied, ranging from mice and rats to insects, worms, snakes, and snails. Sometimes they catch insects mid-flight. They are also talented anglers, plunging into streams to catch fish and crayfish. These small owls will readily use appropriate nest boxes and enjoy nightly visits to backyard birdbaths.
This house is handmade with weather and insect resistant western red cedar. Almost all of the screws are stainless steel. These are used for their durable and rust-free nature. The one exception is a specially coated screw located at the bottom center of the front. This piece is used for ease in removal to clean and mount the birdhouse. Other features incorporated into this box are: vents, for good air circulation; a drain hole, in case water gets inside; and a rough "ladder" for the fledglings to use to climb out.

Barred
Barred/Barn Owl HouseBarred Owl

This box is made to accommodate either the barn or barred owl. Both are year round residents of Florida. The barn is more tolerable of human presence than most owls. This is demonstrated by a very broad range. They have been found living in North and South America, across Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia. The barn owl earned its name from nesting in barns, belfries, and other buildings, as well as trees and caves. They also use appropriate nest boxes.
Barred owls have a spine tingling call; however, their calls also include squeaks, screeches, barks, and yowls. In some areas this bird is known as the crazy owl because of its erratic hooting. This owl is very curious and has often left hiding to investigate owl watchers who have learned to imitate some of its calls.
