Schwegler No. 30 tawny owl nest box

Schwegler No. 30 tawny owl nest box

The tawny owl is most comfortable in open deciduous forests and mixed woodlands. If it can’t find a suitable tree hollow as a daytime hideaway or breeding cavity, it also accepts quiet places on buildings, barns, rocky ground and eagerly welcomes species-appropriate nest boxes and elongated breeding enclosures. But as natural and suitable breeding places become ever more scarce, this Owl species increasingly suffers from housing shortage.

Monotonous forests (with small ratio of deadwood), parks and young managed forests in particular do not – or only conditionally – provide suitable breeding ground and daytime hideaways for the Tawny Owl.
