Molly's coloring is just gorgeous and she looks soft and fluffy. She's really just darling. I must admit - I'm hooked. I keep the sound up, while I'm at my computer and switch back to the live feed anytime I hear her stirring.
Just a warning for kids watching, McGee swoops in daily to grab a quickie. It's always fast and furious and could be disturbing to those who don't understand. But these birds are wild - not someone's pets.

"It's so wonderful to watch an animal, because an animal has no opinion about itself." - Eckhart Tolle
***The second egg hatched Tuesday afternoon, March 23rd and they named the owlet, Pattinson after the school where they spoke to a group of kids.***
****The third egg hatched on Thursday, March 25th (my birthday!) and they named it Austin.***
****The fourth egg hatched on Sunday, March 28th. He's named Wesley.***
04/05/10: Alas, the last egg didn't make it.
4-19-10: Now the owlets are so big, Molly can now longer keep all of them under her wings. Today, she literally flew the coop for almost a 24-hour period, but finally came back. She and McGee both returned with food and fed each of the four babies. The babies slept most of the day and seemed just fine by themselves. McGee brought them food while Molly was away too.
6-14-10 - It's over! The little family of wild barn owls have literally flown the coop and are off on their own now. Carlos Royal has turned off his camera's to the owl box, so we can no longer watch them in nature. It was very educational and a lot of fun. I really enjoyed this and thank Carlos and his family for 5 months of entertainment.
