These Barred Owls, are located in central North Carolina, in what is now a suburb. There were some 800 acres of old growth forest, now cleared for subdivisions. So the wildlife has been squeezed into the older neighborhoods where trees are 70-80 years old. Owls have nested in this box, some 200 feet behind my house, since 2007. It is a heavily wooded area with a clear understory, that owls prefer to hunt in. Leesville Owls
