Barn Owl Boxes in the Field

Pictured below are NC Wildlife Resources Commission biologists Joe Tomcho and Chris Kelly mounting barn owl boxes built by Mountain Wild! volunteers.

We built and donated 30 saw-whet owl nest boxes and four barn owl boxes.  The saw-whet owl boxes will end up on the highest peaks in Southern Appalachia, while the barn owl boxes are going to Big Sandy Mush.  A big thank you to Sunrise Sawmill for their generous donation of ALL the lumber for our Saw-whet owl boxes!
