Thanks Jack.

Any birds that may return will meet the owls next year. Because they only nest in colonies, even a few birds will be difficult to start over with. I can't find anyone who has built owl guards for bluebird houses and I will have to build custom guards for the other housing. One martin house is destroyed and has to be rebuilt. Two houses are old aluminum houses with 6"X6"X6" compartments. They have to come down. Guards could be made for them, but they are over 30 years old and it isn't worth it. I may do a bunch of work and have no birds show up next year, or the owls may beat any system that I come up with.

It will be interesting to document, but it looks like a sad ending.
