Oceanside Barn Owls - Mel & Sydney

Mel (male) & Sydney (female), are a mating pair of barn owls located in Oceanside, California. The owl box owner is originally from Melbourne, Australia. The box was set up in mid November 2010 and the owls could be seen in the box just two weeks later. This owl box is 16ft above the ground in the owners back yard which is near acres of open wilderness. This provides for plenty of hunting grounds for the owls.
Incubation is 30-34 days from the date each egg is laid. Unlike chickens, Barn Owls begin to incubate immediately after the 1st egg is laid. Each egg will hatch on a different day. All time is in PST(Pacific Standard Time). More information about this camera can be found at Mel & Sydney's Daily Blog.

Wonder if Mel will stay in the OB when they start hatching…lol Probably warmer in there then outside….at 11;47pm Syd got up and is at the door looking out..hmmmm is she going out…. changed her mind and came back on her eggs; see where she has a rodent in the corner back left side. I am heading to bed , but wanted to take peek.. About 10pm I got a notice on face book about a possible shooting tomorrow at San Marcos High School.. Police are on it tonight investigating.. Police will be at the school in the morning….
