Barn owls, Mel (the male) & Sydney (female), are located in Oceanside, California

The Box-builder/owner is originally from Mel(bourne), Downunder (+U.S proud citizen), hence the Aussie names chosen for these owls.

The relatively warm winter weather in San Diego County seems to have brought them into the box early to investigate it for nesting potential - looks like it's a success!.

The box has been up since mid-November and owls moved in two weeks later! This box is v2.1 which replaced the original v1.0 by Christmas after some quick learning and wonderous design ideas - see the slide show of construction pictures at www.ustream.tv/channel/owlceanside2

Check back often to see how Mel and Sydney learn to become new parents, CAMs will be broadcasting the action as often as possible.

Box is located about 16 feet above ground level. Dimensions - Length 30", Height 18", Width 16" (left-to-right dimension seen on interior camera), Porthole 6" diam. (and about 6" above box floor)

Sorry, no merchandise will be available about Mel & Sydney - my house, my yard, my box, but EVERYBODY'S owls. The gift we get is the privilege of watching these lovely creatures. If you'd like to benefit barn owls or wildlife in general, then make a donation to an organization in your area.

There are 4 eggs here now. The 4th was laid on the 19th. Owl was incubating and there was food in the corner of the nest box.
