Abstract:Capsule?Habitat parameters associated with 706 Barn Owl (Tyto alba) nesting boxes in Israel were analysed. Pairs bred in 259 of the boxes. The intensity of agricultural practices at nestbox sites were shown to have only a weak effect on aspects of Barn Owl breeding in this region.Capsule?Habitat parameters associated with 706 Barn Owl (Tyto alba) nesting boxes in Israel were analysed.
