Barn Owl Box Research and Monitoring
The Hungry Owl Project will schedule a visit to monitor your owl boxes in Spring (April-May). Following our visit, we will provide you with a report detailing occupancy and recommendations for improving box effectiveness. We will contact you in the Fall to arrange for the boxes to be cleaned, inspected and make repairs as needed. Additional fees may apply depending on location and region.
Box Monitoring: $100 per box.
Owl Box Inspection and Cleaning
Owl Box Cleaning is conducted in the Fall (mid-September – mid-November) and is necessary for boxes that were used by owls during the nesting season. Boxes above 12 feet in height or on a steep slope may not be accessible by our staff box cleaners. If our staff is unable to access your box(es), we can provide you with a referral. The cleaning fee includes minor box repairs: eye screw replacement, hole patching, etc.
Box Cleaning: $125 per box.
