Our outdoor Barn Owl box is an incredibly safe home for owlets due to its 460mm (18”) drop between the entrance-hole and inside floor.

Where’s the best place for your Barn Owl box?

SKU: NST2 Category: Tag:

Do you have a barn, large rural building or farmhouse? Find out why indoor Barn Owl boxes are best.

Tree Barn Owl boxes are the next best option if no building is available. We frequently receive reports of owlets that have fallen from unsafe nest-places, usually from poorly-designed nestboxes. Fallen owlets are generally ignored by the adults and die. Minimising premature emergence of the owlets and facilitating nestbox re-entry help to keep the owlets safe until they are fully fledged. Our outdoor Barn Owl box is an incredibly safe home for owlets due to its 460mm (18”) drop between the entrance-hole and inside floor. This reduces the ‘fall danger period’ for owlets from 38 days to 9 days. Additionally, the generous Exercise Platform has an easy-grip edge that helps clambering young owlets get back inside the box.

Please note. Wood is a natural material. Shrinkage/expansion, warping, wetting/drying and harmless mould, discolouration, cracks and knot holes are to be expected. Our boxes are individually built by hand using tolerances akin to carpentry not cabinet making. Minor variations are normal. Gaps around floors may occur and are advantageous.

The nestbox is supplied with a Hanging Kit already fitted. The screws and nails you need are enclosed.  At the top and bottom there are recycled plastic “hangers” permanently bolted to the box. The hanging system involves screwing and nailing into a tree so, where possible, please choose a dead tree. An alternative method is to use straps (not supplied), they must be UV-stable (polyester not polypropylene). We suggest 25mm / 800kg ratchet straps supplied by Damar Webbing Products.
