In addition to the vacationing friends and family that usually visit Sanibel Moorings during January and February, this year we had a new guest – a Screech Owl!

The resourceful male found the perfect cavity in a Cabbage Palm near the east parking lot where he set about trying to woo a female to the site.  Unfortunately, no females were interested in the new site as the cavity has now been vacated.

A nesting box was purchased and donated by owners Suzanne and David Arch.  We will be mounting the box in a location we hope will attract Screech Owls for many generations to come!
