Introduction to owls & little owl nest boxes
We’re glad to see you on our webpage because we’re huge fans of owls too. We know some people like owls because they look so interesting and mysterious. Others love how they make all kinds of sounds, and they're the only birds that have a heart-shaped face. The interesting part about owls is their night vision and that their feathers have no pigment, which makes them practically invisible in the dark! But not everyone knows how to tell different owls apart. One of the reasons that it’s normally dark when you see one! And they’re normally at a distance! However, when you read about them and look more closely, you can see their differences. But, don’t worry we’ve done the research for you and we can supply you with a great little owl nest box!
About Little Owls
Little owls are different from the other species, measuring from 20 to 26 cm in length with a wingspan between 25 and 33 cm. The little owl is named for its small size, it can weigh as little as 34 grams. This specie doesn't have ear tufts like other owls, but it does have heart-shaped facial discs on either side of its head. If they are living in an area surrounded by humans, little owls can get used to people. Over time they will remain on their perch and in full view, whilst among people.
Why the little owl nest box is gaining in popularity
Little owls are one of the most beautiful and unique birds in the world. They're also a great indicator of ecosystem health, as they can only thrive in clean environments.

The best place to hang a little owl nest box
As we’ve said little owls prefer to hunt at night and they can see in the dark much better than humans can. They are also more likely to be attracted to an area where there is plenty of cover for them to hide in during the day. This means that if you want them to come near your house, it's best if you place the box high up on the outside of your home. You also want to place it in an area where there are natural perches nearby. This will help them when they come back after hunting at night and need to rest before going out again. If you place it on the ground, they will likely not come to it as they like to be higher up ready to spot their prey!
