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.

Both owlets are in this pic. One is on the pot rim and the other is in the bottom left.

15 Dec update: The owlets are still on our balcony…not in the pot plant nest, but in their comfort zone.
One of the chicks loves snoozing on the awning so is out of sight most of the day. The other chick pesters its mom, Lady who must have the patience of a Saint sometimes.

16 Dec update: And they are still here! How adorable are these pictures of the family with one of the owlets using a piece of shade cover as a hammock.
Does it get any cuter?

I heard Pappa hooting on the balcony. I went outside and found him in the pot plant nest, scratching in the soil.
I went outside and caught an amazing video of the whole family
