I will hopefully be posting these regularly in order to hold myself accountable. So without further ado, here is our Fun Idea #1.
We recently saw a birds of prey demonstration that featured a tiny little screech owl. My kids were very taken with it-and I admit, so was I. They are just so darned cute!
Audubon site. Incidentally, that site has lots of ideas and I have it bookmarked for future reference.
The kids were able to help out quite a bit with this project and it only took a bit more than an hour.
The box will be hung on a tree 10-12 feet off the ground. Apparently it is important to hang it in a seldom-trafficked area, as the parents can get a little "testy" when there are babies in the box. Can't wait to see if any little owls move in!
