About the Barn Owl
The barn owl, also known as the common barn owl or the Eurasian barn owl, is a large brown bird with a heart-shaped face. The barn owl is about 33cm tall with a wingspan of between 90cm. If your kids are asking, you can explain that barn owls have round heads with large eyes. This beautiful specie also has white eyebrows which makes them look even more unique! They have big yellow eyes with black rings around them, and these rings mean that they can see really well even when it's dark outside. Moreover, the barn owl also has two distinct facial markings. One strip of white feathers on each side of its face, which runs from its eyes to its beak, and another set of white feathers beneath its eyes. These facial markings are not found in either tawny owl or little owl species.
Why consider a barn owl nest box?
At Spring Garden and Home, we believe that barn owls are one of the most beautiful and unique birds. Like other species, the barn owl thrives in a lovely clean environment. This is why so many people are passionate about animals and the human impact on the environment. The barn owl specie is often overlooked by humans because they are nocturnal. Therefore, we tend not to think about them unless we are told their environment has been threatened. However, anyone can make a difference with a Barn Owl nest box in a lovely environment. So, if you happen to live somewhere where you see Barn Owls, please consider homing this lovely animal in our kingdom.
About our barn owl nest boxes
Barn owls are a lovely specie of owl that are hard to find, especially since they’re very shy. Therefore, this means a lot of people don't even know they're around. But you can change all of this by using one of our barn owl boxes. Our nest boxes are built to last and help owls in their search for a home. This barn owl box is made from pine wood, has a shingle roof, and looks lovely and rustic. It has been designed specifically for the barn owl and features a hole just the right size for an adult barn owl to enter but too small for predators. Furthermore, it’s well-built to keep out rain and snow so that your bird friend can stay warm and cosy when it's cold outside. So, if you’re looking to attract barn owls to your land/home, our Barn Owl nest box is ideal.
Wondering where to hang a barn owl nest box?
You no doubt realise already that barn owls prefer to hunt at night. Of course, they can see better in the dark than we can. When considering this specie of bird, it’s important to know that the barn owl is attracted to areas where there’s plenty of cover to hide! During the day they don’t like to be out and exposed too much and so this is something to be mindful of. And if you wish to have them close to your property, the box needs to be placed high up. It is also recommended that the area has natural perches nearby, so they can hunt at night. (Then of course they can return to the nest box between hunting.) Like many other birds, it’s also a big advantage to the owl being high up for hunting and spotting prey from a distance.
