I've birded for years but only recently become enamored with owls. I hear Great Horned Owls in the wee hours in my suburban SW Austin neighborhood and maybe??? Screech Owls.
Are they found here? Different guides tend to be somewhat too general to answer that though I suspect they are. I'd like to build a nesting box to attract them to my yard if that is the case. I've found several good plans but am open to suggestions from you more experienced owlers.
Thanks!

Screech owls are definitely found in Texas. Here are the instructions for a box of a successful cam I've watched online. http://gargravarr.cc.utexas.edu/owl/construction.html

The Fall time is the best time to hang an owl house. Make sure that you put the screech owl house near a field.
