Tips to mount an owl bird box to a tree to attract owls

These tips were created by a guest poster, who is a decades long bird watcher and owler and was part of the inspiration for our best-selling Amish Cedarwood Owl House. (create a link to the product when clicking on those words Abegail) 
When mounting your owl house on a pole or tree to attract owls, use two long screws or nails to sink a minimum of 1-2" into the tree.  For rougher barked trees like pine trees, use longer screws to get through.  If mounting on a living tree, as most of you are, leave at least 1/4" of space between the back of the box and the screw head to allow for expansion as the tree grows.
Place the owl box at least 15' high and just below the tree canopy if possible. Position the owl house so dense branches are not impeding the bird's straight flight to box.  Orient the box entrance hole to face to the East or Southeast so chicks get morning sun and evening shade.

For our Amish cedar owl house, before you mount it, open the door and score the inside with a knife to create small indentions or 'steps' right under the hole so that it can be easily climbed by the owls.

SAFETY TIP-- Be sure to tie off your ladder while working and have assistance at the ready while you work.  
 
These tips on how to mount your owl bird house should give the best possible opportunity for attracting owls to your backyard.

Why We Make Solid Cedar Wood Step Stools

Our handmade, handcrafted step stools are Amish made in the USA with 100% solid raw cedar.  The aromatic cedarwood is a wonderful addition to any home as it has a lasting anti-insect effect. Great as a bedside stool, kitchen step stool or some even use it in the bathroom as an accompaniment to the toilet, similar to a Squatty Potty.

Cedar is a sustainable wood that is quick growing in a variety of climates across America.  We have had many customers enjoy this footstool over the years, and some like to add a clear coat, some like to add a stain and others (like myself) use it completely unvarnished.

About a third of our customers opt for two or more stools to have throughout the house, in a closet or laundry room, as well as near a bed or in the kitchen.  

This stool slides well when adding small felt pads to the base, and is light enough to be moved with just one foot to another area.  It slides on wood floors beautifully so you can bring it over, use it, and slide it back to the end of my counter where it lives without ever bending over. 

It's an attractive wood and design so it's not a problem being tucked away and still in view as it adds to the aesthetic in the kitchen, bedroom or elsewhere in the home.
