Thanks PJ, for letting me know they're back again...
Yes, two adults can fit in the box. I saw both parents in there more than once before the eggs hatched.

The DNR rep told my co-worker that it's the juveniles who have been visiting the next box. Yesterday my co-worker saw three owls in the box at the same time. DNR rep said it's highly unusual for young owls to return to the box once they've left. This little family has been mixed up from the get-go! I'm delighted that they are still visiting, though, so I can peek in on them. They're such beautiful birds.

Wise little owls! I think they must understand that the shelter of the nest box and each other's company and warmth will help increase their chances of survival through this winter.

Two of the owls are still coming and going from the box. They're both in there snoozing right now. Yesterday they were very active and so much fun to watch. Pretty soon, though, they're going to have to skedaddle, since mama owl will surely want to start a spring brood.

Thanks for the update. That's such good news. Spring is around the corner and I'd think that since they've managed to survive through the worst part of winter their chances of thriving are improved with each passing day.

I agree. I think these two are good to go. (I'm assuming it's the same two that keep returning. There were four to start out with. I hope all of them survived.)

Mama owl is back, and it appears she's laid at least two eggs. I caught a glimpse of two eggs a bit ago when she stood up to stretch.

Mamma's a very busy girl. I hope she successfully raises another nest full.

LOL. That owl is a real going concern, she doesn't waste any time. She's a mama on a mission. I guess the 2 youngsters won't be putting in any more appearances near that box from now on.
