Where are all the Owls?

by Nancy
(St Charles County, MO)

We put up an owl box, made to exact demensions, and after 1 year plus, we still don't have any owls. We have water & live food, live next to many, many trees, our back yard is all trees, but haven't seen an owl. I do hear them in the spring, summer & fall, but never seen them.The owl box is made for the smaller screetch owl size & up a tree about 15 feet. We do not have pets. What else do I need to do to attract an owl?
