Our annual fundraising is underway and we need your help.



We have a challenge underway to see how many HWF families and nests can be adopted during this "wave." Hope you ride the wave and help make this a huge success!

Thanks for your continued support.

Tracy has a message on her facebook page that says she is not going to stream the cam this year. She will have updates. PPO has not laid an egg yet but has been digging around in each plant pot trying to decide what she wants to do. You can read the note from Tracy here https://www.facebook.com/pages/Pot-Plan ... 8721154229

Too bad there won't be a cam Sad

Facebook update from Tracy

As of the 15th September, we have one egg! PPO has laid an egg in the newer nest pot (one used last year). We had quite a storm on Saturday night so hopefully this didn't affect the egg at all. Waiting to see if today or tomorrow brings a second one.

Lesley that definitely is disappointing Sad PPO, Pappa and their owlets were so much fun to watch.

Here is the latest update that I found on Facebook this evening ~~

Gremlins seem to be at work on facebook. Over a week ago, I posted an entry explaining that the eggs didn't hatch and PPO took it upon herself to abandon them. We took the eggs away and they were infertile. Since then, both owls have been back every evening to the nest and visiting. Pappa seems very keen on trying ago; PPO less certain.
Fingers crossed for a second try!

Here is the latest from S. Africa on the PPO family! ---

Pot Plant Owl: "For the previous 6 years, a pair of Spotted Eagle Owls have nested in a pot(ted) plant on the balcony. This morning the female returned to her nest in preparation for the '2014 clutch'. No cam up this year. Last year PPO laid eggs, but they didn't hatch. We don't want to set up all the equipment and nothing happens. If the eggs hatch, we may make a plan."

September 5: "PPO is back. We found her lying in the second pot plant today. I said hello and she's a little weary but settling in nicely. Will give her a couple of days before we take any pictures. Holding thumbs for a successful breeding season."


September 6: "One egg in the nest and PPO relaxed and well. Lots of hooting from Pappa tonight"

September 10: "Two eggs confirmed on 9 Sept. All is well with PPO. Pappa stayed close by last night and hooted throughout the night. Seems he's pleased with the second egg."

September 14: "Still two eggs on 14 Sept. Looks like PPO has decided that two are enough. It has been very hot here and the plants on the balcony needed watering. PPO allowed me to crawl on the balcony floor to her pot plant nest to water the plant. She kept a beady eye on me from the rooftop nearby. Pappa plays Mr Delivery every evening - bringing in food for PPO. Lots of small bites that we've seen. Photos to come later today."

A very short update!

Pot Plant Owl

We've been away for a few days and have come back now to PPO sitting contentedly on her nest. Will check this evening if we still only have two eggs.
