Don't count your owls before they are delivered...
– Albus Dumbledore
For Christmas this year Nate made us an owl house and two bluebird houses. We were thrilled. Unfortunately, the gift did not include installing the owl house at least 10 feet up in a tree. It took Ed and me two ladders, three trips to the hardware store, and a bit of cursing, but we did it.
Now we are just waiting to hear the mysterious nighttime trill of a breeding pair of Eastern Screech Owls and hope that they choose our comfy new nesting box to call home.
