Re: Urban Barn Owl
Hi Aaron et al.,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Yes the population of barn owls in San Francisco seems to definitely be on the increase ever since we first documented them nesting at the palace of fine arts around 2006-2007. There seems to have been a concerted effort to put up barn owl boxes around the city by the various open space management agencies and this is no doubt at least partly responsible for why they have gotten so much more common. I think there’s also a little bit more understanding about use of rodenticides.
Thanks for the report,
