Yeah the new season has started. Now I have to go review how long the eggs are incubated etc. Probably around 30 days.

This will be fun Lori, Mary F, Bev, JEan, BOP and everyone I missed who loves the PPO family and Tracy too.

Clapping

ETA: Incubation 32 days
leave nest at about 5 weeks
fledge at about 7 weeks
remain with parents about 5 more weeks.

Hello Everyone!! Another update from Tracy. I am getting anxious for the cam to start streaming so we can all enjoy watching PPO and Pappa begin their new family!!

4 September: still one egg in the new nest. PPO left the nest at approx 6:10pm tonight and I had a quick look. Pappa's hooting in the territory

Announcing the 2nd egg for PPO and Pappa Sept. 5. Bravo

The ustream chatters seem to think that the cam may be streaming on Sept 6. I so hope so.

Announcing our second egg for PPO and Pappa!!! Whoooohoooo!!!!!!


Here's Tracy's post not long ago!


Pot Plant Owl
5 Sept: we've got two eggs, and a very excited Pappa on the balcony. Confirmed at 18h00



From Tracy's Blog:

05 September and we have two eggs
Pot Plant Owl has settled down nicely in her new pot plant nest. I say 'Good Morning' to her - like I always have - and give her a wink. She looks at me, recognises my voice, and gives me a wink back, before returning to what she does best at this time - sleeping.

At 18h00 I heard Pappa calling from his roosting spot nearby, and PPO moved out of the nest and onto the balcony railing.

We got a peak into the nest and we now have two eggs in the pot plant.

It was funny to watch Pappa when he flew onto the balcony. He hopped straight into the old nest and looked around curiously. I can't help wondering if he's not entirely happy with the change of nest, because he then stood on the lip of the old pot, hooting loudly.

I can tell when Pappa is upset about something. His face appears to almost frown and there is a distinct 'hoot' that he makes when upset - this hoot is usually reserved for interfering humans under umbrellas 'messing about' in HIS territory. Pappa kept hooting and looking into the nest, then up at PPO who was, by this time, on the neighbour's roof.

Let's hope that all goes well with the new pot - otherwise Pappa will have even more to say!
