The new home owner has arrived--Eastern Screech Owl

Starting in 2014, I have photographed a pair of Eastern Screech owls and their young in the front yard of a home close to where I live in Cocoa Florida. In 2016 after the pair fledged 3 owlets, the tree in which the cavity resided was blown down during a hurricane. Hoping they would return, the property owner and I built them a new home. We used some circular pieces of plywood, a 4x4, and a dead hollowed-out palm tree that once had a cavity burrow in it. This is a photo of the female occupying her new home. The pair would go on to fledge another three young Screech owls.
