from chat mod LvOwls,
Even though this is within a tree, Robert Fuller follows the courtship of a male Barn Owl and a female Barn Owl starting with the male claiming a nest and ending with his mate and owlets going about with their daily lives very similar to living in an owl box. You will notice how the female investigates the nest area to make sure it is fine for raising babies like female owl #1 does in the HO. Hope you will enjoy watching this video as much as I did. You will also witness the male Barn Owl enjoying a bath towards the end of the video. There are bees inside the tree which doesn't seem to bother the owls too much.

Dec 9 2017 7:45PM Jasper & Female Owl On Tray/Bond Attempt!

Jasper has a potential mate, #1 female now. She is pretty, not much spots on her body, looks young to me.
They spent time together at the HO in the tree. #1 female spent a few times inside the HO and Jasper even makes bonding attempt with female #1 days ago. They also chasing another owl, perhaps #2 female. It looks like they are trying to make a family.
I am so happy for Jasper, he deserves a mate, and Chula Vista nest is his home now. Life move on.
Sometimes I open the cam, it seems that Didi and owlets are still peaceful sleeping there...
Since 2015, I watch Wilson growing (H&D C3), I watch this nest almost everyday, take ton of pictures... I love this nest box, it's so sad to me...

Ustream cams are still offline, I'm not sure they will open it again or not... I only read from chat daily, no pictures

We think it was Jasper who was inside the HO at 11:56 pm and bolted out and accidently collided with #1 female who was on the porch. She ended up hanging upside down for at least a moment. Then she flew to be with Jasper on the LO, then went to the tree. At 12:26 am she went inside the HO and appears to be fine.

TY, seira, for updates and sharing the videos! :wave:
Pity, that it will be the last season to watch this Barn Owl Cam.

From Owl Channel:
Luna must have sensed egg #1 was non viable from the time that she laid it and that's why she wasn't incubating it, They do know and she took care of it the owl way. The egg shell is still there next to her and with time she may eat the shell for calcium or it might disintergrate

The non viable egg # 1 is not under Luna, it is on the right side of the pantry in the open

sad news about Jasper
prayers for our beloved owl family

from chat mod Sher,

From Owlbert: The last time I have him on video is 3/6 after the two owls were there. He sat on the porch for awhile and flew off around 9:33PM. I couldn't tell for sure if he was chasing another owl or not but didn't see one close by. He did not come back after that the rest of the night.

This is from me: We don’t know if Luna will abandon her eggs, we will have to wait and see what happens.
For OCG to supplement now I don't know if he could. Luna doesn't know him. If. he climbs up and puts food in the pantry he would scare her out of the box and she may not come back. There is also a chance that if he did that, she would come back and all would be fine for now. Didi knew he wasn't going to hurt her and would come back He has supplemented 4 other times. If you are on the multicam page scroll down to the chart under the weather and you will see the info for this box.
For now Luna is content and incubating, she seemed to have gone out and hunted and came back smacking her beak and had gopher neck around 12:49am from vxn’s ss post.
The last time Owlbert had Jasper on video was 3/6 around 9:33pm when he flew off from the porch.
All we can do now is pray for a good outcome

Mar 6 2018 8:33PM Three Owls/8:38PM Four Owls!

it's heartbreaking
wish the best for sweet Luna

https://www.facebook.com/TheOwlChannel/ ... 0930988465
Below is a statement from Ang and OCG about the sad situation at the HO. They are heartbroken that we are going through another tragedy.

We think something must have happened to Jasper or he would have returned. As for trying to supplement, the timing is not right. There is just no way we are going to be able to logistically provide for Luna and the clutch at this point in time. Unfortunately, what we think is going to happen is she will abandon the eggs in a few days. We can’t see her staying on the eggs without a male around. We are taking a wait and see attitude and things are not looking good.

Luna left her eggs at 11:59pm 3/10/18 and flew off. She knows that they are non viable. At 1:34am the male owl from yesterday showed up and went inside to check things out. Luna came back 5 min later and chased him off. The male has been inside the HO 4 times so far. Not with Luna. Could this be Luna’s new mate? Jasper did this with Didi when Hans went missing. Stay tuned to see what happens next !!!!

We are saddened by the events of the last week. It appears we have lost Jasper and have lost the eggs. We are devastated by the sudden turn of events. Unfortunately, intervention will not be possible at this point in time. As previously stated, this will be the last clutch we will be able to broadcast from this location. Our broadcast will end much earlier than expected. We will stop broadcasting as soon as Luna leaves the box for an extended period. We will continue the Owl Channel Website with links to other broadcasts that are available and the Chat room will remain active. We want to thank all of our viewers for their support and a special thanks to the Chat room Moderators for their time and dedication.

Comment from Cher67:
Sher67 9:51 PMOCG & Ang are going to be spending more time with family and don’t feel that it’s right just in case something happens with the cams or a situation with the owls comes up that they are not able to handle right away. OCG has been broadcasting since 2011 and we appreciate his & Ang’s dedication to the owls and their well being.

Really sad news about Barn Owls and cam there!

We have officially discontinued our live broadcast after 7 years. We have been blessed with multiple owl pairs and owlets. We have witnessed both good times and bad but mostly good. We will continue this Website with links to other cams and the Chat Room. A huge thanks to all our supporters over the years.

I think there are many feelings I want to say, but I feel that everything goes without saying
There are many dreams there, we share joy and sadness together
I hope Luna takes another mate and starts a clutch, fly safely
Tears, I will miss this broadcasting
Maybe one day we will get news, hugs for everyone here

Update on the Hideout, Luna and the new owl. The other day when we removed the cameras, we found severe rotting of the main post the holds up the owl box. We were left with the difficult decision whether to completely redo the base or take it down. There was no way to leave it up in its current condition as it was likely to fall in the near future. How it hadn’t fallen in the recent winds is surprising. We decided to take it down. It was very sad because it had been in the yard for so long. The yard seems very empty.

As for Luna, she and her new friend are still in the area. They visit the tree often and are roosting next to each other. We have not seen any bonding but it is probably too soon for that. We decided to name the new male Diego. I am sure they miss the Hideout but I am also sure they are going to find a place to nest nearby. If we see anything noteworthy we will let you know.

Please enjoy the available cams and chat on http://www.owlchannel.com and let us know if there are any cams out there we can get on the site.


I am so happy for sweet Luna and her boyfriend, Diego
