A Look Back on the 2019 Owl Cam

Another season has come to an end, so let’s take a look back on the 2019 Owl Cam and the noteworthy moments that happened with our owl family.

The owls returned to the nest box this spring. Two eggs were laid in early March then hatched in early April. From incubation, to bringing all sorts of food to the nest box, preening, and more–Mama and Papa Owl were both very busy taking care of Fluff and Puff. The owlets grew and grew, then finally fledged on May 7th. Just like that, the season ended just as quickly as it began.
