There are 3 eggs, and high hopes that all will hatch. It all started a few years back when the current owner purchased a property that came with “resident owls.”

Residing in a tree fairly close to the house, it was easy to watch their activity and soon they became an interesting source of amusement. A few years later, it was discovered that the tree that housed the owls was dying and becoming unstable. Fearing if the tree and nesting spot were removed the owls would never be seen again, the new owners decided to save the tree and support it with a “monument” of concrete.

The owls’ home is now very secure and should provide many years of viewing pleasure. The interest in the owls has extended from family to friends and beyond. A couple years ago a camera was installed and now anyone who wants to enjoy the nesting habits of the Great Horned Owl can do so and share their experience, thoughts and questions with the community.
