Atlanta Architect Builds Housing for Barn Owls (Tyto alba)

Published in 1990

Thanks to a conservation-minded Atlanta architect, Barn Owls (Tyto alba) in the Atlanta area will have new nesting sites to choose from this spring. Keith Summerour of Gruber and Associates Architects, an Atlanta based architectural firm, has designed the housing for two pumping stations and has included accommodations in them for Barn Owls. Keith said he first got the idea in Europe where he had observed owl holes under the gables of 18th and 19th century barns.
