Document Description
The project will install artificial burrow nest boxes for burrowing owls in order to restore natural habitat. The boxes will be installed at a depth of 2 to 3 feet. The design follows recommendations by US Fish and Wildlife Service (2006). The boxes and tunnels will be made of wood (or plastic), 18 in. x 18 in. x 22 in. The trenches will be dug by hand or using a backhoe. The boxes will be buried with native soil and the surface restored to a natural appearance. Small wooden perches will be installed near the burrows.
