For instance, a Burrowing Owl, lives in a burrow, and in western parts of North America.  They will not nest in your tree nest box, but you can create a nest box for them, in the ground.  This is a great option for those of you who are fearful of heights, and if you are lucky enough to live in the parts of the country where they thrive.

And, you should check with your local DNR to ensure you are approved with a purchase or build of an Owl Nest Box.  They will have great patterns, and advice on how to make your Owl Nesting Boxes the best for the surrounding Owls.
