|Screech Owl and Squirrel (link to original pictures)|
Here is an interesting story out of Texas (link to original story). First off, that's a very unusual looking Screech Owl Nest Box, seems a bit deep. This is why we can't keep our nest boxes on trees or within reach of squirrels in trees. They will relentlessly attempt to take over the nest box. When its time to lay eggs and guard the owlets this Screech Owl is going to have a tough time defending this nest from many potential intruders. I wish the owls all the best!
