Did you know we are the proud host site of a pair of nesting Barn Owls here at Homeplace? We were sent a copy of the Barn Owl Inventory Report from Avian Biologist Ms. Kate Slankard and we want to share it with you!
Barn owls are found all over the world, but they have been struggling here in Kentucky and are nearly endangered.
We are thrilled to know that not only are our owls still nesting here, but that there is evidence of a general increase in the species population here in Kentucky! This is great news and we are blown away by the great work conservationists have done to see results like this. You can read the full report from theKY Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources below.
Special thanks to Kate Slankard for her and her team's work and for keeping us in the loop about these amazing birds here on the farm!
