Tawny owls are the most abundant owl in the UK, typically found in deciduous and mixed woodland. They will also inhabit urban areas where wooded parks or large gardens provide attractive habitat.
As a cavity nesting species they will naturally use large cavities in trees. However in our highly modified landscape, available large tree cavities are often rare and putting up a tawny owl nest box can provide a nest site where there is a shortage of natural sites.
Our Tawny Owl Nest Box may appear strange as it is more like a tube than a box - but this is just the way that tawny owls prefer them. It is designed to replicate a hollow branch or tree cavity that would be used naturally. These owl boxes are best strapped or fixed to the underside of a branch at an angle of about 45 degrees to the vertical with a clear flight path to the entrance. Alternatively, they can be fixed to the trunk of a tree by screwing a diagonal batten onto the middle of the nest box, and then fixing the ends of this batten to the tree.
These tawny owl nest boxes are designed to provide the best accommodation for Tawny Owls and feature:
Well drained floor
Open roof (just as the owls prefer)
Easy access hatch for cleaning out the nest box at the end of the season
Manufactured from precision cut panels of FSC certified exterior grade plywood and sprayed with a water-based non-toxic preservative to create a long lasting bird box.
Please Note: Tawny Owls have a reputation for particularly vigorous protection of the area around the nest so their boxes are best sited somewhere quiet and the birds not disturbed whilst nesting.
