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.
