Barn Owl Webcam - Spring 2017 Roundup
The Barn Owls laid seven eggs this year and all of them hatched. Not all survived which is very typical for Barn Owls. Three Barn Owl chicks survived and successfully fledged.
The Barn Owl is one of our most iconic birds. As the name suggests, this species is happy to take advantage of man-made features when nesting and regularly raises its young in buildings.
Barn Owls typically incubate their eggs for 32 days and chicks will spend around 50 to 60 days in the nest before taking their first flight. A little smaller than Tawny Owls, Barn Owls are rodent specialists, with voles, shrews and mice accounting for the vast majority of their diet.
