Retrofitting Normal Owl Boxes to Keep Squirrels Out

Found this great instructional homemade video on a nice idea for box mounting and maintenance. He uses it for Kestrels, but would be just fine for normal Sceech owl Boxes. place anywhere where squirrels can’t jump to the top, but not too far in the open. (unlike kestrels which like wide open areas/placement)

also this blog post, also on kestrels uses a doubled 4×4″s so the top post can pivot on the post that is buried in the ground. (see shadow for visual on second pic)
