John Atkinson (Vacadude) Visits The Owl Box
July 25, 2010
John and his wife were in town for Comic-con 2010 so they stopped by to see The Owl Box. They got to see McGee fly in and go to the kestrel box but McGee did not come sit on the fledge ledge like he has been doing almost every night since the second clutch started. We figured it was because Molly was stuffed. She had consumed two Opossums during the day.
We are now on day 19 of the brooding cycle…Only 14 days to go for estimated first egg hatch. My, how time flies when you are having fun. The speculation has already started as to what Donna will name them. The names will be released as each egg hatches, not before. Will Molly beat the odds and have all 4 eggs hatch? We hope so. One really bright spot is the weather has been really nice, not too hot and not too cold.
We tried to add another outside camera yesterday to show the kestrel box at night but it was not acceptable quality. We will replace it today and see if we can get the quality up. We replace them during the day time but we have no idea how they are going to work until it gets dark and then we have to work around Molly and McGee. McGee usually goes to the kestrel box before making an entrance to The Owl Box. Also, the owlets flew to the kestrel box to test their wings, so want to be able to show you that if we can.
You can support The Owl Box by visiting our CafePress Store. There you can purchase T-shirts, Mugs, Cards, Prints and other items. Have fun looking around.
