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.

Per SPO Newsletter:

1st egg laid on 9/4. About 30 days incubation from the date the 1st egg is laid until hatching. Nothing has hatched yet. I’m afraid we might not see a hatch, but the good news is that the female is still actively incubating so maybe the 2nd and/or 3rd egg will still hatch. Fingers crossed!

Thank you Chris for the info. I have been wondering about the eggs being viable.
