Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s Great Horned Owl Live Cam

New favorite thing: Watching a Great Horned Owl sitting on her nest (and two eggs) on the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s All About Birds Great Horned Owl webcam. Formerly an eagle cam, the owl cam is located in Savannah, Georgia on Skidaway Island. On windy days, you can see the owl bristle as the wind stirs her feathers. At night, she makes cooing squeaks. The eggs, laid on January 23rd and 26th, 2016, and will be incubated for 30—37 days.

Above, a video from January 23rd: With the first egg laid, the female is brought food from a male Great Horned Owl… it’s a delicious lizard! Below, watch her hang out on Jan 19:
