As we join this cottage-nesting pair, the female has laid three eggs. You will see her diligently incubating the eggs on a near constant basis, as the male will do all the hunting and will arrive back at night to feed the female. We expect more eggs to be laid over the coming days, so stay tuned! Of course, we hope that in a month from now there will be chicks in the nest, which is when the fun (and the noise!) really starts, but you will have time to get to know the male and the female before things get too hectic.
There are two nest cameras, one focused on the nest itself, and one focused on the entrance to the nest. You can open both views and switch between them, depending on where the birds are and where the activity is. You can also scroll back to view recent activity. At this stage of the season, the camera focused on the nest provides the best views, and this will remain the case until the young are mobile and start to move to the nest entrance.
We are sure that you are going to love these birds as much as we do! Please feel free to comment in the live chat, especially if you notice any interesting owl behaviour. Also, please share this live stream with any family and friends who might be interested.
