  1. Unless my adding is wrong I still think your a day off on the hatch time, the average hatch time is 33 days so egg on would be 3-18, egg 2 would be 3-21 and so on, so today maybe egg one unless egg one is the one that bit the dust, a great thing you have done here, really touched alot of people and got them thinking about nature, its wonderful, great work, I have a spot on flickr and love to take photos of birds, raptors are my favorite, if you have time take a look

  5. As a disabled person of 60+ years, i appreciate stepping back into my youth when my parents were wild bird enthusiasts in our own backyard. Our property, at the time, was surrounded by undeveloped canyon and we had fun watching [especially after dark] all manner of iniginous wildlife wander through the yard. Noteworthy was a Great Horned Owl that we surmised was somebody's pet because it seemeed so comfortable to roost in our portacarpus tree by day.. My brother, who worked at 'Taco Bell', used to bring the owl -> MERLIN [we called him] a ball of spicy ground beef wrapped in celephane. My brother would hurl it high into the air and MERLIN would easily catch it while it was still in the air.

  6. I am amazed, I have had other birds nest in my back yard too but never any large birds. Owls have always be so scarce but very manificent when you get a glimps. Last concert down at the coor theater, when the concert started, No Doubt, the Owl flew out of the rafter of the stage it was amazing. Thank you for sharing the world this wonderful event, most will never see one and you have provide us with such an insight to the nature of this beautiful animal. thank you.:o)

  7. Your bird photos are wonderful. I love the owlcam. Keep up the good work.
