Owls welcome! Your new home is ready!

Owl box

Owl box

Thanks to Lee Pauser and Larry Sasscer, we have a new owl box at the west end of T.J. Martin park.  Park users and personnel…. It is important to keep loud/noisy equipment & activities away from the box during nesting season. Nesting season in a normal year is January thru July 1st.  Owls can be spooked causing egg abandonment or pre-fledging of owlets.  Watch out gophers & squirrels!

    I didn’t know they used a ladder to get into their homes! Don’t they drink Dos Equis?

      If you look closely you can see they drink Corona Light but the box looks empty so I hope they were still able to climb the ladder.
