Owl Cam comments prior to 2010:
Mrs Owl just left the nest.
Female is dozing behind haze of ants at 04:01 am pst
Mom just brought up a pellet and is putting her head n weird positions to see it. Now it’s time to eat.
she is a calm owlbuddha in a chaotic world of ants
-rubs her tummy for luck-
The earthquake was in Mexico – Jeanne’s map is very good. I use the same site up here.
Where’s dad to be? It’s been a while since he’s been home..
Linda, The earthquake was at 10:48 am and occured in Northern Baja. I definitely felt it here in San Diego – lasted about 30 seconds while the building swayed. Usually the quakes seem to be up by LA and flow down here to San Diego. We got it from the other direction this time which is probably why you didn’t feel it.
When we have little quakes during the night, my cockatiel cage thrashes. By the time I wake up to turn on lights and calm her down before she breaks a blood feather the quake is over and I don’t know why she is thrashing. I’ve learned to note the time when she thrashes and then check the USGS website in the morning.
No, I didn’t feel any earthquake, Seattle – when was this?
That’s a cool map Jeanne. Owl nest is approx 60 miles SE of LA, I think.
Debbie, it does look like she’d like to do the 1 legged stance but then seems uncomfortable with it and stands on 2. Just my guess too…
Here is an earthquake site that is quite accurate.
Hope this helps.
Where is the nest?
When was the earthquake?
I notice that she stands on both legs most of the time now. Could it be that as she approaches egg-laying time, she might feel a little heavy or off balanced and that stabilizes her? Just a thought.
I felt it. I started a new job this week and was on the third floor of a 6 story building. The building swayed back and forth.
…I think Linda watched the mesmerizing ant/sleepy owl cam too long and nodded off Seattle!!!
But thanks for asking, I was wondering too. Anybody???
Hey Linda – did you feel the earthquake?
Yup, it rained all day here in So California; not hard but steady.
Same scenario has 1/2 hour ago. One on the launch pad, the other in the back. Ants on the periphery of the cam.
Mr. Owl is in the front, Mrs. Owl in the back rasping, and the ants have command of the cam!
Yup. So. Cal is dark today.
There has a been a light rain going since about 10 this morning.
Would def. be a reason for the ants to be out early.
I can just see the male now, facing to the right. And a talon only of the female behind.
OK, I get it… it’s raining. Happens so seldom I didn’t think of it!
