Pot Plant Owls – Johannesburg, South Africa

You are watching live streaming video of a Spotted Eagle Owls nest, better known as “The Pot Plant Owls“. This nest has been built in a potted plant on the camera owners balcony. The Eagle Owls have returned to this nesting site every year since 2008 to raise their brood.

About this nest – The female will lay from 3-4 eggs 48 hours apart and begin a 30 day incubation period after the last egg is laid. The owlets will fledge after about 55-70 days from hatching. Read more about this pair of Spotted Eagle Owls at the pot plant Owl blog.
