Hi all,
just popping in for a "test" and hello to all.
and just a wee bit about me:
have loved owls all my life, so much so, that they are one of my top three totems. (w/white buffalo calf & sea turtle). aaand, i got an owl tattoo several years ago.
in the past few months, i have had the pleasure of viewing my first internet live owl cam...Molly & McGee Royal of San Marcos, CA. the four owlets just recently fledged and a few days ago, the cam was shut down. needless to say, i am now suffering from withdrOWLals. which has led me to your awesome owl site.
so i'll be poking around and posting here and there and hopefully, make this one of my habitual stops when i surf around the web.
thanks for providing this wayward "owl" such a nice refuge!
Smile

Welcome to the forum.

Those web-cams can be quite addicting.

I grew up in Hawaii, but moved to California for college. I wasn't interested in owls when I lived there, and now my family always tells me when they see owls, and last time I visited, took me to a spot where barn owls are frequently seen.

Welcome. I also followed Molly and McGee, as well as several other owlcams.

Audubon has a great cam on a pair of barn owls with 4 eggs (one is beginning to hatch) It's located in Orange County, southern Cali. if you want to take a peek, look up Starr Ranch. You won't be disappointed! This is the pairs' second clutch this season.

Here is the link to the Starr Ranch Cam: http://www.starrranch.org/blog/?page_id=2

It is a streaming video in B&W. A lot of bandwidth is needed. Takes a little while before it starts. It will have a black screen before it starts.

There are three eggs as of this morning. I think the first owlet died.

You are very welcome. I had trouble getting the camera to load at first but that was quite awhile ago. If you can post to the site & ask Pete(resident biologist & camera guy)what you need to do for mac, he's very helpful. If not him, somebody will help. Good group!

When I had looked in the morning there appeared to be 3 eggs, and what appeared to be a dead owlet. I watched it for a while to see if the other owlet was around. When the moved around, and I didn't see it, I assumed that what was in the front of the screen was a dead owlet. Glad to see that is not the case. I should also note that the camera was on IR.

The time it takes to load will depending upon your Internet connection speed. It can take several minutes for a slower speed.

I don't remember seeing any owls when I lived in Hawaii, but I wasn't interested in them until college. I did see a barn owl near Koko Head a few years ago when I went hiking. My family reports seeing pueo (short eared owls) all the time, though.

I have a mac, and I can see the webcam perfectly fine. I'm not sure what to tell you.

I don't normally post anywhere about owls other than here, so I never posted on the stream.
