This nest box provides nesting habitat for the tawny owl. Jackdaws and cave pigeons also use this nesting box.

+ -


Tawny owls nest in a variety of cavities in trees and sometimes in buildings. This nest box offers tawny owls a spacious and safe nesting place. The extended sides at the top make it more difficult for martens to crack the nesting box. However, prevention is impossible due to the agility and resourcefulness of these predators.

The nest box also likes to be inhabited by burrowing pigeons and jackdaws. If the tawny owl wants to use the hive it will chase away any other users.

  • Hang the nest box at least 4 meters high along the forest edge, in the forest, a park or (large) garden.
  • Do not hang the nest box with the entrance opening facing southwest.
  • Do not place the cabinet where there is sun all day.
  • In the nest box, add a small amount of nesting material (dry wood chips).
  • Since every location or tree is different, we provide the nest box with minimal means to hang the nest box. During placement, it is best to assess what additional resources are needed for stable and safe placement.

The hive can be cleaned after the breeding season (preferably in the winter months). In doing so, beware of disturbance because the tawny owls use the nest box year-round. Therefore, allow the work to be as short as possible.
