Buildings suitable for barn owl boxes should have a ceiling height of at least 4 metres, so the box can be installed at least 3m above the ground. Owls should be able to access the building through an open entrance at least 3m high, and should be able to see the nest box entrance (barn owls are interested in openings and holes, not boxes and buildings!).
The building should overlook open countryside, and there should be rough grassland for hunting within 1km.
The birds will tolerate noise and activity if they can hide in a box. However, you should not site a barn owl box within 1 km of a motorway or other fast, unscreened, main roads due to the high risk of road-deaths. Pastoral habitats are best. Avoid urban, suburban, dense forest and high mountain areas.
