Screech Owl Activity Increasing!

Posted by on Mar 6, 2013 in Bird Conservation | 0 comments

Screech owl activity at the nesting box in Jensen Beach has ramped up. The female has been staying in the nest box during the daytime and preparing the nest at dusk before she goes out to hunt at night. This has been going on for the last several days and we expect to see the first egg arrive soon. The male has recently started to bring food to the female as she prepares the nest; another sure sign that the first egg will be laid soon. After the first egg is laid another egg will be laid every 2 to 3 days for a total of between 3 to 8 eggs. We’ll post new video as soon as the first egg is laid, so check back often. In the mean time here are a couple of videos of nest preparation and the male delivering geckos to the female.
