This past week, Lee Pauser and I cleaned out all of the large bird boxes on the course. When I say we, I really mean Lee cleaned them out. It was something like 8 barn owl boxes and 4 American kestrel boxes. This year in particular seemed especially dirty. When I say dirty, I mean full of small rodents discarded in the form of pellets by the barn owls. If you’ve been to Cinnabar this year, you know the small rodent population is abundant.
While out cleaning the boxes, we were discussing the addition of 2 or 3 barn owl boxes. Cinnabar is a great location for barn owls and the more the merrier in my eyes.
