Tawny Owl Webcam
Welcome to the 2021 Tawny Owl Cam
We believe both male and female owls are our friends from last year, and so we wish them all the best for the new season ahead.
The Tawny is a woodland bird, these owls do sometimes inhabit urban areas provided there are plenty of large trees for them to rest in.
They usually lay 2-3 eggs, and these are normally incubated for around 30 days. Once the eggs have hatched both the female and male will then be busy feeding the youngsters with rodents and perhaps the occasional bird and even a young rabbit or two.
The chicks will fledge after around 35 to 40 days but will typically stay under the watchful eye of their parents for a couple of months before heading out to forge a territory of their own in late summer or autumn.
