I've put a man made nest for great horned owls in a friends spruce tree where several have been hanging out. I've installed high def live cameras on
it as well. I don't expect the owls to settle into the nest until late winter and they wont have young until around spring so don't expect much
action until then. Also, they wont be bothering to switch to the night cameras when it gets dark until the owls start using the nest. So for now, at
night, it is just a blank image with sound. Be forewarned that there is a very loud train that goes by several times a day/night.

You might hear the owls hooting and screaching nearby tonight. But if you check it out when its light out don't be too hard on my nest building
I've had some lovely times in the wilds with everything from burrowing owls to barn owls, little hoots in the darkness and one or two screech owls.
Such wonderful nocturnal guardians! Love love love love love owls!
I wish I could! The ones I heard were barely seen a few times flying across the road from tree to tree. The one time I might have gotten a great
pic, of one sitting on a post late one night, I didn't (of course) have my camera. Always seems to work that way.
