Joni House, Preservation and Program Coordinator, left a silo after checking for signs of barn owls at Perryville Battlefield State Historic Site in Perryville, Ky., Tuesday, June 17, 2014. In a cooperative effort between East Kentucky Power Cooperative, Ky., and The Kentucky Dept. of Fish and Wildlife Resources, the Perryville Battlefield Historic Site has put up "owl nest boxes" to provide shelter for Barn owls that live on the property. The Park plans to raze old barns and silos where the owls have been living. This silo will be razed in the fall once they are sure the owls are no longer living inside.
