THANKS JAZZEL for finding out some info on this nest usually occupied by Osprey's. I will wait and see if this new GHO will need it's own thread.

The Wilmington, NC (Shandy Point) Osprey web cam nest has a Great-horned Owl nesting. She has an egg!!



I emailed Rob Bierregaard about the GHO on the Osprey nest. I asked him if there would be a nasty fight when the Ospreys return, or will they look for a new nest site. His reply.

"Pretty safe bet that they'll look for a new location. NOBODY messes with Great-horned Owls."

This a new cam off the Beleef de Lente web site....an Eagle owl cam but not going to start a thread yet unless you owl lovers want me too!

Welcome to the owls of "Experience the springtime! We are with our nose in the butter, because it was still questionable whether the owls nest cavity where the camera is focused on would take. But ... I succeeded. On February 18 the first egg has been laid. One day the egg is left alone and then started breeding. How many eggs have been laid, we can not see. The next 3 weeks the female will breed almost continuously. Only the evening and the morning she'll probably just stretch the wings. Across from the nest they will occasionally be offered a delicious bite of the male. If we are lucky he is also prey to the nest into.

I apologize for not doing the research - but I've never heard of an eagle owl - is this an owl found in Europe? Or a different name for one we have in North America? Or just something everyone else has heard of?

She does look very handsome. Smile

Another Falcon cam in Rome, Italy but it is a refresh cam.....they have four eggs so far this season

http://www.birdcam.it/cam.php?camid=15& ... =cam15.php

These two peregrine falcons are breeding on the top of a water-tank of ACEA just behind the ringroad of Rome.
Their nest is placed on the highest point of the 60 m high tower, which dominates a large green area.
This area surrounds the water spring of "Acqua Vergine" which still supplies Trevi fountain and other important fountains.

The names of these peregrines recall those of two important aqueducts of Rome:
Appio is the first built in 312 b.C. and Vergine (built in 19 b.C

More information about the Eagle Owl. This is also the first time I've heard of one but they certainly look like our Great Horned Owls..

EAGLE OWL
(Bubo Bubo)

Description: This eagle owl is the largest and most powerful owl in Europe, about (27 inches) in length. It has a large beak and enormous talons but its most noticeable features are the striking orange eyes. It has prominent ear tufts, which are raised or lowered depending on its mood. The plumage is mostly mottled but with bolder streaks on the breast.

Habitat: Can be found from Europe across Russia to Pacific, South to Iran, Pakistan across to China and Korea. Eagle Owls occupy a variety of habitats, from coniferous forests to warm deserts. Rocky landscapes are often favored. Adequate food supply and nesting sites seem to be the most important prerequisites.

Diet: Will eat almost anything the moves - from beetles to deer fawns. The major part of their diet consists of mammals (Voles, rats, mice, foxes, hares etc...), but birds of all kinds are also taken, including crows, ducks, grouse, seabirds, and even other birds of prey (including other owls). Other prey taken includes snakes, lizards, frogs, fish, and crabs.

Reproduction: Usually breeding begins in late winter. 1-4 eggs are laid on a shelter cliff ledge, in a crevice or a sheltered depression on the ground. The eggs are incubated for about 35 days. The young leave the nest by about 5 weeks and can normally fly within a further 3 weeks. They become independent by about 24 weeks old. In the wild, they live for approximately 20 years, but they can live more than 60 years in captivity.
