My owls are completely wild and are free to come and go as they please. I make every effort to WATCH and not interfere with their activities in any way. As a result there are things I don't know and have to deduce by continuing to watch. My priority is to record and document their activities. In order to do that, I use my computer to record from sundown to sunrise every day. During the day, the Screech Owls (as do other nocturnal owls) spend virtually the entire time sleeping.
I will be trying to broadcast live during the day (I know that is the boring time) and preparing short videos from the nocturnal activities to share with you. In central NJ, nesting (if it is going to occur) is due in mid-March. By that time, I hope to be able to record and broadcast simultaneously. At the moment it looks like I will need a second computer (newer than the one I have which is running on Windows XP) but I am looking at other options.
Tomorrow, I will share some of my observations from this and past years on the weeks leading up to nesting. I also hope to have at least one video ready (but am struggling a bit with the updated software that is smarter than my brain). More then.
