The GOOD news, the box was not being used by any screech owls.
The BAD news, well thats obvious, time to replace and relocate
The UGLY, well the box was one of my ‘squirrel resistant’ prototypes, trying to get dimensions, design and materials figured out. It also used aluminum flashing instead of vinyl. As such it was an UGLY box.
FYI, the tree came down in the recent Dec. 2010 blizzard.
