Female Barred Owl Returns to Brood Growing Owlets – Apr. 18, 2017

Watch as the female Barred Owl returns at dawn to brood her three growing owlets.

The three eggs hatched on April 6, 8, and 10. The Barred Owls‘ sole focus for the next 4–5 weeks will be to provide enough food and warmth to their owlets as they grow old enough to venture into the wild beyond the nest box.

Third and Final Barred Owl Egg Hatches! – Apr. 10, 2017

Egg #3 has hatched! All three downy owlets were visible when the female made a quick trip out of the nest box this morning. For the next 4–5 weeks, the adults sole focus will be on brooding and feeding these young owlets until they grow large enough to explore life beyond the nest box.

This video from the USA says about itself:

On April 6th around 9 P.M., the Barred Owl female left the nest box and revealed the first Barred Owl hatchling! The young chick, covered in white natal down, can be seen moving around the bottom of the nest box while the adults caterwaul in the distance. Assuming this was the egg that was laid on March 5th (the first of the clutch), it took 32 days for the chick to hatch—on the long side of a typical Barred Owl incubation period that ranges between 28–33 days. Keep watch as Egg #2 could hatch at any moment!

There are three eggs in the nest, expected to begin hatching around April 5. Thanks for watching!

Jim Carpenter, President and CEO of Wild Birds Unlimited, has hosted a camera-equipped owl box in his wooded backyard in Zionsville, Indiana, since 1999. Set more than 30 feet high against the trunk of a pignut hickory tree, this Barred Owl box was first occupied in 2006. Since then, the box has hosted several nests, including successful attempts since 2013.

Barred Owl Eggs Could Pip Today

Keep your eyes peeled for a pipping egg on the WBU Barred Owl Cam; the pair’s first of three eggs, which has been incubating since March 5th, is scheduled to begin hatching today! At any moment the soon-to-be hatchling could start to make the first pip, or initial break, in its eggshell. Watch cam.

After pipping, owl chicks can take as much as 12 hours to make their way out of the egg. If things go as planned and all three eggs hatch, we’ll be spending the next 4–5 weeks watching three closed-eyed, hungry Barred Owl chicks grow into fledglings and prepare for their emergence into the wilds of Indiana.

In the meantime, enjoy the sights and sounds of this rural forest by listening to the Barred Owls’ distinctive hooting calls and checking out what’s new on the menu for these generalist foragers—we’ve already seen an earthworm and a vole in the nesting box this year.
