Good Morning All!

I went back and got the link to my video I made from the end of last season. I thought I would post it here in case you might be interested in seeing and hearing Tracy and Allan talk about their owl family. It's just over 45 min long, but they were very informative about the work they do and the studies of this owl pair! Hope you enjoy it!!

Morning Jean! Smile

Thank-you for posting the video of Allan and Tracy!! It was great to see and hear them 'live' and their comparison of different clutches. I had to laugh at Tracy's description of the visit with PPO to the Vet. I don't have to go back to the scaps to remind myself of 'the look'! Azizi often had 'the look' too, particularly when PPO brought her a tiny snack instead of the big one she was expecting!

I spent an hour or so last week reviewing the pot forum from day 1, and it really was interesting - and lots of fun!

Take care - Yolande

A new post from Tracy:


Pot Plant Owl
Pappa was quite vocal last night. He flew from rooftop to rooftop around us hooting. We didn't see PPO and Azizi so suspect that the two were off hunting together, and Pappa was 'marking his territory'.

Good Afternoon All! I have held off closing up the 2012 season in hopes that I would have news to post from Tracy. From what I can tell, Azizi has not come back to the balcony since she made her "maiden voyage"! The last pictures we have of her was that posted by Tracy of all the family on a neighboring condo. Tracy has mentioned seeing Pappa and hearing him, but no signs of PPO or Azizi. All we can do is hope that PPO is with Aiziz and teaching her how to be out on her own!

To close this season, I will post the timeline here. Once again I thank of all those that followed this nest with me and for all your contributions of reports, s'caps and videos! Looking forward to the 2013 season!!

2012 Season

Eggs Laid:
Egg #1- September 3, 2012
Egg #2- September 5, 2012

Eggs Hatched: The eggs did not hatch and were removed from the nest several weeks after the due date.

PPO Mom surprised everyone and laid two more eggs. Estimated dates laid were:
Egg#1- November 7, 2012
Egg#2- November 9, 2012

Eggs Hatched: Not available. Chicks were first seen on December 8th by Tracy.

Chick #2 died on Christmas Day (December 25, 2012). Tracy removed the chick the following day and said it had a wound most likely from an accident possibly during feeding. She buried the chick in her fenced in bird garden.

Naming: A contest through Africam named our chick Azizi the beginning of the New Year, Azizi meaning "Precious One"!

Fledged:
Azizi made her "Maiden Fledge" on January 20, 2013 in the wee hours of the morning.
That was the last time Azizi was seen on the balcony!
