Barn owl nesting season has begun

UNDATED – Although barn owls can nest during any month of the year, most eggs are laid in March and April. Indiana Department of Natural Resources maintains a live nest webcam stream year-round in one of their barn owl nest boxes.

Barn owls have been nesting in this DNR-built nest box inside a barn in southern Indiana since 2009. Wildlife biologists within the Division of Fish & Wildlife have placed more than 400 barn owl nest boxes since 1984.

Last year’s resident pair laid eggs in February and fledged one owlet in May. Watch the live nest webcam to see when the first egg is laid over the next few weeks.

Barn owls are a state endangered species in Indiana and supported by the Indiana Nongame Wildlife Fund.
