Q.A Quyestion About Owl Houses

Zone Los Angeles, CA 90019 | Faull added on July 31, 2022 | Answered

I have a ledge that I am thinking of installing on my building for owls to use. I can send pictures of this ledge. It measures 28 x 32″. I need advice on some points. 1. This is only a ledge. Would it attract owls to set up house on it? Do owls really need an enclosed box? . 2. I would like advice as to the best location on my building where the owl house should be installed.   3. If this ledge I have is insufficient or inappropriate to attract owls, I am prepared to purchase an owl house. In this case can you recommend an owl house for my location? Any and all answers to my questions and advice about owl houses will be appreciated. Kym Faull

Please DO NOT post your personal information to the public. This is very unsafe. I have removed it, this time.

Now, attracting owls will likely require a space for them to roost. This will need to be more than the ledge, so an owl box is recommended.
