I installed a Screech Owl nest box last year and to my surprise one took a liking to it this fall. The box is mounted on a pole with a baffle to keep Squirrels, Raccoons and snakes out of it and it's located on the backside of my property near a patch of woods.

I decided I wanted to monitor the box using a wired nest box camera and so I don't disturb the owl currently residing in the box I'm building a second box and installing it near the current box hoping it moves into it. Only time will tell if that happens.

This is a picture of the temporary monitor I will be using just for testing purposes and that's not a real owl in the picture (lol). I have some more testing to do before I install the new nest box. I also have to figure out what to use to record and/or live stream the video feed because I have a few people already asking me if that's what I plan on doing.

If anybody is interested I will be live streaming video on Youtube using some cameras I'm setting up in and around the Screech Owl nest box I have in my back yard. It's a work in progress and right now I'm only using one external camera but I plan on adding a camera inside the nest box the owl is currently using once I figure out it's routine at night or if it happens to leave the box during the day. I don't want to disturb it while it's inside the box just to install another camera.
