Wild Birds Unlimited Barred Owl Cam

Mama Barred Owl has set up residence in our owl nest box again this year. Jim Carpenter, President & CEO of Wild Birds Unlimited, has hosted a camera-equipped owl box in his backyard for many years.

Mama, in late February checked out the box and began to set up house. She laid the first egg on March 5th, the second one on March 7th and third one March 9th. If all goes well, we can expect the owlets to hatch in early-April and they’ll fledge at four to five weeks of age.
