Owls to Base 4
We have a plan to put up owl boxes at Base 4 to encourage some of our
nocturnal raptors to make it their preferred home. Some people
might ask why we would want to have owls in artificial boxes living on
the property. They might say that if they wanted to stay there then they
would naturally be found there. I feel that we need to try and attract
the natural world back to Base 4 and this is an ideal way to start. Read
more about owl boxes at Base 4 here.
