Where to put a Barn Owl nestbox in a building

Donate Support Our Work Button 2

Finding the best position for your nestbox may make all the difference to whether Barn Owls will occupy it or not. When choosing where to place your owl box, remember that Barn Owls look for holes at least 3m from the ground.

Barn Owls are not interested in buildings or boxes, and they’re just as likely to nest in a modern building with a suitable nestbox, as they are in a picturesque traditional barn!
