Momma's Roosting Today!

Today was the first day of the spring that the female spent the entire day in the nest box!  Since my last post, night activity has been increasing steadily.  From February 19 through last night, nightly visits by both owls were recorded peaking on Thursday night with 8 visits for a total of more than 1.5 hours in the box.  On Saturday morning, Papa delivered a mouse and left it in the box.  Rather than eating it there, Momma picked it up and took it outside.

Last year, the first day she spent a day in the box was 3/5 and she did not start spending every day until 3/16 with the first egg laid on March 20.  I am setting up the computers for live feed so keep checking back here for the announcement!

Here are a couple of photos from the last few days:

And finally today:
