Three Spotted Eagle Owlets in Waterkloof!

It is important to ensure your owl boxes are serviced every year before the owl breeding season. This is to ensure that the box in your tree is an owl box suitable for the female owl to lay her eggs and raise her young.

A ring ceremony - you're invited.

A lot of our members and followers are watching and enjoying the Verreaux's Eagle Owlet (Bubo lacteus) on the EcoSolutions Owl Cam. It is all really exciting at the moment as the owlet is often alone on the nest and is growing rapidly. On Monday, 21st September, we are placing a ring on the Verreaux's Eagle Owlet. Join us on Facebook live.

Presentation on Owls and Bats

It seems that webinars, talks and classes online are the new norm. Jonathan Haw was invited to give a presentation by Green Renaissance and Whale Coast Conservation on the conservation of bats and owls in Southern Africa in July 2020. Feel free to watch the presentation on Facebook - link in the article.

Our Owl Cam is Live!

We are delighted to share our Verreaux Eagle Owl Cam! A few years ago, we put a tyre in tree in Mziki Game reserve in the Northwest and filled it with sticks. In June, a friend who lives there sent us a picture of the female Verreaux Eagle Owl (Bubo lacteus) in the nest. Last week we installed an Owl Cam! It was wonderful to watch the owlet hatch on Saturday, 25th July 2020.
