Homes for Hoots (https://www.facebook.com/HomesforHoots/ ) is a small business founded by Michael and Katie LaTour. Michael and Katie are passionate about raptor conservation and want to support wild owl populations by providing birds with suitable nesting sites and generating donations for RAPTOR Inc. All profits from the sale of the nest boxes will be donated to RAPTOR Inc.
Nest Boxes Offered:
Eastern Screech Owl Box ($50)
Homes for Hoots will build you an eastern screech owl box in exchange for a $50 donation to RAPTOR, Inc. These boxes typically cost between $50 and $65 retail. Our eastern screech owl nest boxes are built from untreated three-quarter-inch thick birch plywood and all rust-proof hardware.
Barred Owl Box ($75)
Homes for Hoots will build you a barred owl box in exchange for a $75 donation to RAPTOR, Inc. These boxes typically cost more than $100 retail. Our barred owl nest boxes are built from untreated three-quarter-inch thick birch plywood and all rust-proof hardware.
All materials are locally sourced and support local businesses. All lumber is untreated as research suggests that boxes constructed using treated materials may bring harm to birds. All hardware (screws and hinges) for the construction of our nest boxes are intended for exterior use and are rust-proof.
Nest boxes may be picked up at RAPTOR Inc.’s facility at 961 Barg Salt Run Rd., Milford, OH 45150. Call the raptor center at (513) 825-3325 to arrange for pickup.
