NEW OWL BOX VIDEO

video
We have upgraded the camera in our owl box this year to automatically record video clips upon detection of motion. This has allowed capture of house hunting activity a couple of months before the start of egg laying season, during which the owl box is continuously occupied as the eggs are laid and incubated. Attached is a 19 second video clip with sound captured this evening, December 30, 2013, during a brief investigation of our owl box by a barn owl. It follows a similar investigation on Christmas eve, with no barn owl activity in between.
