SCREECH-OWLS ARE A HOOT
......................................................................................................

Screech-owls thrive in both suburban and urban backyards across most of the U.S. They typically nest in tree cavities, but readily accept nest boxes. Screech-owls make excellent neighbors, helping to control the population of rats, mice, and harmful insects.

Being an owl landlord is easy and exciting! Once a male or mated pair find your box, you'll have a blast watching them hunt, roost, and raise owlets. Still not convinced? Take a look at our testimonials below to read first-hand how exciting one of our houses can be!


THE HOOT DIFFERENCE
......................................................................................................

NOOK MINI™ by HOOT®

why we made this

This innovative box is designed to mimic the natural shape of a tree cavity – screech-owls typically nest in "nooks" and tree crannies. The house is crafted from sustainably harvested cedar, for long-lasting durability and beauty. Features include drainage holes, an overhanging roof, and ventilation slots for maximum comfort and cleanliness. A ladder on the inside of the front panel makes it easy for fledglings to climb out when it's time to leave the nest. The box can be easily cleaned out through its large entrance hole.

The exterior of the box is finished in (natural, dark brown or black) using a natural oil finish. Why? Natural wood is typically pale and really stands out in the trees, which could make it more noticeable to potential predators. (Note: owls prefer an inconspicuous nest box)

*Note: The large slot entrance hole is typically not desirable to most of our cavity-nesting birds like starlings, bluebirds, titmice, or chickadees...including squirrels!

Mounting Instructions:
Mount this nest box 10 to 30 feet high (facing south), using the included screws and pre-drilled holes for the best chance of occupancy. Add 2"-3" of wood shavings.

TESTIMONIALS - WHAT'S ALL THE HOOT ABOUT?
......................................................................................................

"For 3 straight hours, we watched our 2 baby owls prepare to fledge their nest. It was a National Geographic moment right in our backyard."
-- Jeff S., Austin, TX

“We hung our hoot owl house a week or so after we received it, and within ten days had a tenant. The owl spends much of the day perched at the opening of the box, where we can observe him from our deck. Such a thrill!”
-- Melissa B., Andover, MA

“I love giving these as presents! I just bought one for my bosses 50th birthday.”
-- Jordyn F., Buffalo, NY

"I bought myself one for a Christmas present last year. On March 28, 2011, 'Hunter' arrived. What a great experience. Thanks!"
-- Dave H., Tampa, FL
