Give a Hoot About Owls

Saw-whet Owl overwinters along the Connecticut shoreline but nests farther north.

Got bird houses? Lots of people do. But have you got owl houses or habitat? 

Owls have a keen appetite for mice and other rodents, critical vectors of the disease-carrying tick population. Who can deny the attraction of natural tick control? Owls also eat voles, critters who are responsible for lots of lawn destruction. Some owls also hunt shrews, skunks and rabbits, among other prey.
