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).

Nice to see some activity on the OB.
Watching Decorah eagle youngsters hanging around – longest I’ve ever seen them do that. Must be because no Dad Decorah to help w/ teaching hunting, ,fishing, flying skills but Mom is doing a great job!
Also, looking at a Puffin nest w/ a little one inside for another two weeks. Nest is a burrow below rocks in MN.
Interesting stuff, strange cute birds that make the strangest sounds.
Okay, TGIF! Well, now it’s TGIS, ha. Doesn’t matter, still have to work. Cheerio!
