We all had terrific views last night of the preybox and surrounding areas of the yard, kanga panned the cameras and we saw the owls perching on the fence under the owlbox. Arial views of the owls flying in the sky and at times we saw 3 flying around , chasing and playing. Deets, screeching, and twitters from the owls who are sounding very adult like now.
The treats are getting incrementally fewer and night before kanga had well hidden survivors in the morning, "so they get the night off anyway - and owls didn't actually score much - so had to look in the fields and perhaps found where the wild things are."
Last night the main cam wasn't inside the PB, but rather right over under the small fence.
*Information about the nesting owl box from kanga -
kangawatch> box goes up when i get round to it - still much to do, but that's not an excuse - once up and owls decide to reside, then it's hard to mess with the tech stuff (new carpet, gotta clean inside yet, rehab both cam systems, weathrproof .. long list. seriously though... The whole thing has to be reliable, untouched once up, for safe nesting and uninterrupted hi-quality viewing for months - worth doing right. Not in a hurry - July/August is not the best time to bake owls - but also a good time to blow the dust off a fishing pole and take a break - box will be back up soon (likely later this month) and we are not risking a mating pair moving in right now for many reasons - OB will be back up soon enough.
