Good luck to Midnight, Star and Moon!
Midnight, Star and Moon have either branched or fledged from their nest, which officially brings the 2024 Owl Cam season to an end. Thank you so much to those who tuned in to watch the Barred Owl family with us this year. We have received several messages from our viewers who shared how much they love and care for the owl family. A big congratulations to Mama and Papa who have done such a wonderful job raising their three owlets. We hope you enjoyed this year’s Owl Cam season and look forward to watching it with you again next year!
