Vendor Spotlight



Air Superiority creates custom Barn Owl, Bat and Endangered Birds Nest Boxes and more!
“Barn owls are incredibly widespread in America, so when you put up your nest box, you’ll start seeing barn owls take roost in them in short order, and then they’ll start going to work for you,’ said Tom Stephan, master falconer, raptor expert and owner of Barn Owl Boxes in Ramona. “Using natural predators is more effective than conventional trapping or poisons, it’s economical, eco-friendly, and protects local wildlife.”


Tom and his team of craftsmen hand make every owl box out of Luan Mahogany panels made from recycled materials. For as little as $150, you can get started with a basic owl box. And buying a box is a one-time investment, as they cost nothing to maintain and the owls are very good at keeping their nest boxes clean. If you have more to spend, the Hoo’s Hoo box with installed camera is one of their best sellers. Just connect the camera to your TV or computer and enjoy the best reality show you’ll ever watch.
