After listening to Screech Owls in our neighborhood for years, we put up a box, In just 3 days we have a resident. Is there a reliable way to tell a male from a female? We think we see 2 different faces looking out at different times. Also, how long will they occupy the box and when does it need to be cleaned out? Thank you.

Texas, just north of Dallas. We have heard them in the neighborhood (we also live next to a park, creek and power easement) for years, but had never seen one. My wife came home and saw one perched on the corner of the roof, so we decided to put a box up. 3 days later - voila'! We have been watching and can't tell if there is one or two. Sometimes one seems a little bigger and fuller, but we can't tell if it is a larger one, or just the way he/she is perched.

Our resident disappeared for 3 days and we were concerned he/she may have perished - but this am - back. We are watching closely, as we are hopeful for Owlets! Funny how these ones, just grab you! We know it is nature, but we were sad to think something had happened!

It appears we had a male and female, who we saw daily - occasionally flying at dusk, but mostly peering out of the owl box. The suddenly disappeared and after 10 days with no sightings, I checked the box and it there is a nest, with no egg pieces. It seems as if they have abandoned it and left. Is this normal? Might I expect them to return this year or a new set, or is the season just over.
