Owl Ring Recoveries

Ring recoveries are an essential component in the EcoSolutions Owl Box Project and owl rehabilitation. Young owlets who fledge from our owl boxes are destined to go on and become "owl box breeding owls".

It is on this "natal recognition" that the success of our project relies. This type of information is critical to our knowledge as it helps to indicate release procedure success and provides data on fledging distances and survival rates. If you do come across a dead owl in the Gauteng area, please contact us. Without sounding too macabre, we would love to have a look at it.

In this gallery are ring recoveries from owls that were released through the EcoSolutions release programme.

Our box have a spotted eagle owl! We stay on a smallholding in the Chancliff area, Krugersdorp and discovered that our recently serviced owl box, has a long awaited inhabitant! So glad and thankful to have the privilege of sharing our piece of nature with hopefully a breading pair soon! Have to tell you the bats are also happily occupying their box!

Brilliant service from hugely knowledgeable installers at our home in Harties this morning. We are thrilled with our new bat and owl boxes and sure the residents of these will be too! Excellent to know that EcoSolutions also monitors numbers and patterns of the owls in perpetuity. Thank you!

Fantastic, thanks to all at Eco Solutions for your support and help with Strix (our injured owl) and the installations of the boxes and houses at Steyn City.
