The Tawny Owl Nest Box is a handmade nesting box designed to provide tawny owls with a suitable cavity for nesting.

Handmade in the UK from FSC Certified wood, this nest box is built to last.  

Tawnies are territorial birds; only one pair will occupy a woodland territory and nest site. Tawny Owls will take up this box for nesting, especially when looking for new nest sites, and may reuse the box every year.

  • Handmade from solid FSC-certified timber
  • Slow-seasoned timber negates the need for chemicals, stains or artificial preservatives.
  • Lightweight but durable
  • Recycled plastic upper and lower hanging/fixing plates
  • Integral perch
  • Large inspection door with bolt
  • Fitted with a camera clip (camera not included)

Siting

The Tawny Owl box should be placed high up on a mature tree between 3.5 and 5 meters, with a clear flight path to the entrance. When the fledglings emerge, they use nearby branches to reach higher parts of the tree canopy. Therefore, mounting the owl box on an isolated pole is not suitable.

The nesting box should ideally face east, northeast, or southeast to ensure ample prey. Tawny Owls eat a diverse range of prey, such as mice, voles, rats, insects, invertebrates, amphibians and birds. Nearby fruiting or nut-bearing trees that support these prey species would provide vital food sources close to the nest and indicate an optimal location.

Monitoring and Inspection

Tawny owls are early breeding birds, and some individuals may lay eggs as early as January. You may inspect the box in May, but You should take care in opening the inspection hatch as tawny owls can be aggressive if young are present or nearby.
