How to attract Barn owls to your yard?
Barn owls may also use abandoned buildings for nesting, and leaving a barn or shed open for the birds to access can give them a great place to raise a brood of owlets. Nest boxes for owls should be put up by January or February since these birds nest much earlier than other backyard species.
What do owls eat in your backyard?
While some owls consume small birds, insects, or amphibians, many species of owls feed primarily on small mammals: mice, voles, gophers, ground squirrels, chipmunks, etc. A healthy rodent population makes your backyard an attractive stop, or place to live, for owls. For most people, however, this is a cringe-worthy prospect.
Do owls come to bird feeders?
Food: Owls will not visit bird feeders, but it is possible to provide a steady food source for these hunters. Because owls eat mice, voles, gophers and similar small rodents, backyard birders who have mice nearby are more likely to attract owls.
How to protect your home from an owl?
Owls hunt more effectively in darkness and will not visit well-lit yards. Keep pets indoors after twilight and during nighttime hours. This will keep pets safe from hunting owls and keep pets from scaring away the mice and other rodents that owls will hunt.
