J. Rickards Winery has a problem, gophers and other rodents are tearing up his grape vines. His solution to this problem? Barn Owls! Since many old barns are being torn down, these owls need places to stay. So Mr. Rickards built birdhouses for the birds so they can hunt the rodents that threaten his grapes. It's an arrangement that works out for everyone! Well, maybe not the gophers...
