Owlets Have It Too Good
May 18, 2011
Molly and McGee can tweet and the rains can come but the owlets are not leaving. All four were having a ball last night and getting plenty to eat. Remember when McGee starved the first clutch out of the box, not this time. Let’s have a banquet seems to be the motto for this bunch of hangeroners. This Third Clutch is known as the Owletgeneration. In owl time this clutch has already spent 20 years at the owl box. Mcgee called last night and said, “What’s it going to take to get you out of here.” Their response as you can see was, “Let me think about it.”
I didn’t mention it in advance because we didn’t know we were going to do it. We did a broadcast last night on Owlbox2. Mostly it was just testing a camcorder to see if we could live stream with it and it worked. Austin is going to live broadcast a BMX Event this weekend. He needed something better than a webcam. We also wanted to see if we could give you a better view of the owlets flying around the yard. What is interesting is you can not live stream with the new camcorders (at least that was what we were told) without a lot of jury-rigging but my 12 year old Sony camcorder was completely compatible with Ustream. Who would have thought that and it has a 120X zoom feature, just what Austin will need. If all goes as planned you will be able to watch the BMX contest on Ustream http://www.ustream.tv/channel/seriesof4 this Saturday. We will post times later.
You have a great day and “we’ll leave the camera on for ya.”
Carlos, Donna and Austin
P.S. If you haven’t already don’t forget to get your Large Framed Print of The Third Clutch, all four owlets.
