    Unhappy Question for birders

    Please see post #3.


    Dad is a very good provider. I see two mouse-type things in there.

    bumping up. Owl egg hatching.

    Oh no!! It looks like she is eating her baby (hope I'm wrong). They turned the cam off.

    Cam is back up and mom looks to have blood on her. Baby was alive (heard peeping). Now no baby and she is sitting on her remaining two eggs.


    Does this happen often?

    I just visited the webcam, and they post that the egg was slow in hatching, so Mama began helping - she did indeed eat the owlet. They write, "Its the owl way." Maybe Mom sensed something NQR with Owlet#2.

    Cool webcam except for cannibalism--thanks for posting

    I've been watching this Great Horned Owl cam since the chicks hatched. They're now just about to fledge.
