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.

Pot Plant Owl
Just now on Facebook

08 January update:

The Team tried again last night to catch Pappa..by trying to entice him to the balcony. Pappa came close but not close enough. Good news is he’s still flying strong and is close to the nest. Come on Pappa… Let’s get you the help you need.

As a big storm cloud rolled in, we had to admit defeat. Our beautiful, strong Pappa who has been visiting our balcony since the first night we moved into our home (13 years) and whose been flying in our complex for longer (16 years) was not going down (to the ground) without a fight. Despite the trich, Pappa still has some fight left in him which is why he has survived for so long. Our wonderful neighbours in no particular order of brilliance are: Colin and Amanda (Mandy) Deon and Inga Craig and Audrey (who is sick and still helped)… Read more »

Update on our chick:

The disease is progressing but the chick is fighting it hard. Daria is doing everything she can to save it. Our chick is being fed artificially because it has stopped eating.

Daria is taking the chick home today to look after over the weekend.

We will see it again on Monday. We’re not giving up on this chick…Still no sign of Lady
