Mama Barred Owl has set up residence in our owl nest box again this year. Jim Carpenter, President & CEO of Wild Birds Unlimited, has hosted a camera-equipped owl box in his backyard for many years.
Mama, in late February checked out the box and began to set up house. She laid the first egg on March 5th, the second one on March 7th and third one March 9th. If all goes well, we can expect the owlets to hatch in early-April and they’ll fledge at four to five weeks of age.
Calcium is the most challenging mineral for birds because when they need it, they need large quantities and they need it right away. This is mainly during nesting time for egg laying ans well as chick development. The amount of calcium in their natural diet of seeds and insects is often inadequate and they must seek calcium-rich foods as a supplement. Ask us about the many bird foods we offer which include calcium to help your nesting birds.
Our source of calcium is from oyster grit or limestone dust. Both are finely ground and easily consumed by small songbirds.
Be a seasonally savvy friend to your birds by providing them with the extra calcium they require during nesting season.
