Eastern Screech-Owl

I heard an Eastern Screech-Owl calling one night, so the next day I got some plans and built a box for them. It wasn’t long before we noticed a head sticking out of the hole. A Screech-Owl had moved in. Since that time, I have found the male in an adjacent tree and have photos of the female bringing in food to some owlets inside. I have not seen the babies yet, but they should be good sized by now. Photos were taken in my backyard in Beverly Hills, FL. This is the male in the citrus tree below the box.
