Joy-Ithemba has flown off our balcony. This happened a couple of hours ago right after sunset. Our chick flew down into our garden and ran around the grass for a while. Lady flew in and fed it, but it still didn't stop Joy-Ithemba from exploring more.

It flew up onto our garden bin then onto our wall, before flying across to the neighbour's wall. The neighbour is entertaining tonight which poses a problem when guests leave. Pappa and Lady are keeping a close eye on Joy-Ithemba and will attack anyone / anything close to it that they deem to be a threat.

We've contacted the neighbours so they've aware of what's happened. Let's see what the next few hours brings.

Joy-Ithemba had quite a night of successful vertical flight. It ended up visiting two neighbours and this morning flew into a garden. Here it managed to get back on our dividing wall. Both parents are watching from a tree nearby.

Our adorable Joy-Ithemba made it to the top of the rooftops! How it scrambled / flew up we don't know but we were so relieved to see it at the top when we returned home. Well done beautiful chick! Super proud of you.

Joy-Ithemba returned to the nest this morning...all tuckered out from its big adventure last night and this morning. Not sure if we'll be lucky to get another photo like this again.

Joy-Ithemba is still with us, returning to the balcony every morning. It thinks it's 'The Cheese' as evident in this photo. Lady is on the pillar to the back right of Joy-Ithemba.

Little one exploring our balcony this afternoon. At one stage, I thought it was going to jump into the window by me

Thank you for posting the pictures, I hope that later in the year you have a new batch of owlets.

I loved reading about the Owl, you were so lucky. I am glad your neighbours were nice and helped the owls too.


It is offence with a huge fine under the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act and the Migratory Bird Treaty Act to go near a nest. Watch the cams and enjoy them without disturbing them!

All photos are copyright by the site owner of the cam. Do not use without permission of the people who run the cam!

"And they're back! We arrived home yesterday from the top end of the world to find a visitor in the original pot plant. Happy to have you back, Lady. Not so sure the other resident birds are as pleased..."
