Hancock Wildlife has a new cam in Victoria, BC. A Great Horned Owl has taken over a planter on the balcony of a federal office building. The three eggs hatched this week but there may be only two babies remaining. It's hard to see the chicks as Ma, whose name is Oullette, keeps the owlets covered most of the time but that will soon change as they grow larger. So we are getting occasional glimpses of her young. Pa, whose name is Ollie, delivers food but mostly watches over Ma and her brood from a nearby tree. Now and then you can hear him hooting.
