Great horned owl eggs hatching on webcam


This video from the USA is called Savannah Great Horned Owl Cam Dad Finally Shows Himself! 1-31-15.

From the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in the USA:

Owl Hatch Has Begun!

We’re excited to share the news with you that the first egg in the Savannah Great Horned Owls nest has begun pipping! Late last night a small hole was seen forming and there is a high likelihood of seeing a new downy owlet enter the world over the next 24 hours. “Pipping” refers to the process of the chick initially breaking through the shell, using a hard projection on its bill called the egg tooth. The resulting hole is the “pip” that the chick then enlarges to finish hatching. This year’s pip follows 33 days of incubation by the female Great Horned Owl in often windy and rainy conditions.

Don’t miss your chance to see the young owl emerge live on the Great Horned Owl cam, made possible in partnership with Skidaway Audubon.

As if hatching owls aren’t enough to keep you busy, be sure to also check out our Kauai Laysan Albatross cam where a three-day-old nestling is beginning to adapt to life outside the egg. Special thanks to the Kauai Albatross Network for on-the-ground updates on hatching and invaluable insight on albatross behavior.

We’ll continue to post updates on the Bird Cams Facebook page and on Twitter at @birdcams. Thank you for watching!
