PRESERVING BARN OWLS
Perryville officials try to preserve barn owls while restoring land to Civil War condition

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Sunday, July 13, 2014 8:59 AM EDT
PERRYVILLE, Ky.


An effort is afoot to save barn owls roosting in structures at the Perryville Battlefield State Historic Site while officials also work to restore the area to its condition during the Civil War.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports preservationists built new, safe homes for the birds, but they haven't yet moved it.

Park officials are planning to tear down several barns and silos from the 1950s in order to make the property look more like it did in October 1862, when the Battle of Perryville was fought.

Park preservation director Joni House said officials are trying to gently nudge the animals to move, but will exercise patience in the endeavor. She says she doesn't want to preserve one thing at the cost of another.
