Comments from the 2011 nesting season.
Maybe not a cracked egg but a New Years Chick?
Debris gets on the eggs and they can look cracked. 5 or 6 days till the first chick is due.
Their both on now. :-)
I can only get one camera at a time to work. I refresh and the left one will come on. I refresh again and only the right one will come on.
I can’t get the cams working al all..
Yep. Both of mine are blank as well. Same thing last night. Figured it was a demand and bandwidth issue.
Problem solved. Needed to upgrade my Flip4Mac software. Both cameras are now visible.
My left cam is out…anyone else?
I hit refresh, and my left cam is still out.
Try a few times; at least, that’s what I did!
It’s working again! Thank you Pete!
Something different: the camera on the left is dark. PTZ camera shows all is calm in the cavity.
Afternoon everyone!! I just moved to Laguna Niguel, and I get the OC Register news paper… Starr Ranch and the owls are in it!! I read the article what Pete said about the owls and it talks about the owls + the eggs. There is also a great picture of Mrs. O standing, moved to the side and she gave a view of the 6 eggs. So sweet!! Anyway, Mr. O is standing besides Mrs. O sleeping, while she picks at leftovers on the ground. She also seems to be digging a bit with her beak into the same spot, now letting out a few soft raps… Have a wonderful saturday everyone.
I was watching last night and I think I witnessed MsO rolled over on one of her eggs and it broke. I think it put her in a terrible mood and she got into a terrible verbal fight with Mr O. It went on and on and then MrO talked softly to her and left for a long time after that. She seemed very upset and couldn.t settle down for hours. Do anyone else see that too? Around 10:00 pm…..Ann
I saw Mrs. O light into Mr. O and chased him back to the porch as he was coming into the Ritz. Didn’t get online early enough to see what happened previously. I just figured female owls aren’t much different from female humans. (Boy, am I in trouble now).
Boy are you in trouble now!!! But I will forgive you since you responded to my question……..Ann
i was watching last night and saw it Ann, but i counted 6 eggs this morning i had a real good looksie, then Mrs O moving them around a little, i am going to watch more now that i am done with my chores/shopping,and fed my own animals lol… Happy New Year!
I’m new to this website. I installed the plug-ins but nothing happened.
I would love to follow the barn owl and the hummingbirds but can’t
figure out how to do it. Help!
What plug-ins did you install? You will need to install the Flip4Mac plug-in if you are on a mac, or Windows Media Player plug-in for pc. You also can find helpful FAQs in the right sidebar of this site for answers to many questions you may have about the the cams, barn owls, previous nesting history, location of nest, and more.
Two of my favorite owlie vids for your viewing pleasure. Can’t wait for the chicks to hatch! Happy New Year!
To The Sky:
Cat & Owl
Thanks for posting Mary. I’ve never seen the ‘To the Sky’ clip and really enjoyed it!
Here’s a great OC Register vid clip of Pete, and showing Mrs O’s prior clutch early this year. You can see some of the comments that emma, birdergirl and Marisa had posted.

Oops… sorry! Here’s the correct link:

Having trouble viewing cams on my new Android tablet
I have an iPad2 and am not able to view the cams, either, but Pete is aware of this accessibility issue.
Nice owl close-ups.
nice chirping of the birds, i can hear mother nature at its best, the owls are loving and caring for each other as god planned it, wonderful day today, sun is shining!
looks like Mr O is resting next to Mrs O, as she glanced back at him, so adorable!
mama rolls her babies in place, good mama!
I like eggs for breakfast
I DO TOO
The following features would be a welcome addition:
- Ability to refresh comments without having to refresh the whole screen and therefore the web cams. It’s interesting to read the comments as you watch the webcams, but you might miss something if you have to refresh the whole screen each time.
- Have a link to post a comment on top of the comments so you don’t have to scroll all the way down.
I agree with both suggestions Dan. The reloading of the cams every time a page is refreshed is a bit annoying because, for me, the cams take several seconds to load! Maybe with continued donations Pete might possibly be able to improve his equipment.
I can’t get the barn owl web cam to work.
Are you using Internet Explorer? I can only get it to work in Internet Explorer.
Sue, are you on a PC or mac? Sounds like you don’t have the proper plug-in installed. You will need to install Flip4Mac if you have a mac, or Windows Media Player if you are on a PC. Also, FAQs in the right sidebar of this site has answers to many questions, including web cam troubleshooting tips, the barn owls, prior nesting history, and nest locations, among others. Good luck!
I know its kinda late, but I use Fire Fox and it works fine for me. I can see the cam on the internet and fire-fox.
