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.

The next 60 days are going to be very exciting! We will see the owlet grow from a white ball of fluff to a fully fledged juvenile Verreaux Eagle Owl. Please share any sightings you see with us. You can help us gain valuable insight into this amazing owl.

The Owl Cam is streaming live on our homepage (www.ecosolutions.co.za) where you can share your sightings and screenshots.

To date, we have seen nyala, impala and elephants moving beneath the nest tree and we have identified Crested guineafowl, Crested fracolin and Black-headed oriole as prey items.

Our owlproject.org school children are getting involved too. Kids will be watching the webcam around the clock in 30min sessions and feeding all of us with significant information about these magnificent owls. If you would like to sign up as a Verreaux Eagle Owl Nest Monitor, please drop us a mail at info@ecosolutions.co.za.
