DNR offers barn owl nest boxes

DNR offers barn owl nest boxes

DNR biologists monitor the population of state-endangered barn owls and put up nest boxes for the owls when possible. Nest boxes are available for free and can be placed in any barn or large outbuilding, including metal-sided garages and pole barns. Biologists are placing nest boxes throughout March at sites that currently have or recently have had barn owls.

The nest boxes give the owls a safe place to nest and improve their chances of successfully raising young. Contact Amy Kearns atakearns@dnr.in.gov or (812) 849-4586 to request a nest box installation. Read more about barn owls in Indiana.
