Florida Barn Owl Cams

You are watching two live cams of Barn Owls nesting in the Everglades of south Florida. The Cam has been made possible by the University of Florida and the Charter Group of Wildlife Ecology. Spring nesting starts in January and fall nesting usually starts in September. Hatch is about 30-32 days after the first egg is laid. More information about the Everglades Agricultural Area can be found here.

Update-
Not seeing any owls in Cam 1. Looks like box has been cleaned a bit.
Cam 2 has a young male (seen in photo) spending time in box, foot stomping and calling in hopes of a female. Very muddy claws. With all the crazy weather, hoping owls are getting enough food.

Food was brought by parent to box 1, they seem to do good.
TUTU still has a few tutu – fluffy feathers left, lol. 😃. Box 1 siblings are on the roof, wingersizing like crazy. Tutu wants to go outside, too, tries to climb out several times, but seems to prefer the inside. There it stands on 1 leg and is food -calling. A sibling comes back inside, they welcome each other with short beak-touching and grooming. Cute!
Box 2 is empty.

Looks like juvies in Box 2 have all flown off to seek their own territories. Haven’t seen them for a couple days.

TuTu was so excited when sib on roof. When sib came back inside TuTu almost made it onto deck.
