Ohio barn owls are beginning to thrive once again.
The Ohio Division of Natural Resources (ODNR) has been working since the 1980s to help the Ohio barn owl population grow and rebound from low numbers. In 1980, there were only 18 active nests in the state. After exhaustive efforts by the ODNR, there are now 100 known active nest sites around the state.
