Welcome to The Owl Channel! Here you can watch wild Barn Owls (Tyto alba) in live 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They roost and nest in an owl box we call the Hideout. We have cameras inside the Hideout as well as cameras outside to see them come and go.
For more information visit The Owl Channel. The Website has many pictures of the different barn owls that have been here as well as eight live video streams along side of our moderated G rated Chat.
The most recent pair of owls at the Hideout are named Didi and Jasper. They started their first clutch in December 2016. Didi had two eggs but she abandoned them most likely because the owlets from the previous clutch were still in the area and creating havoc in the box. In Febuary, 2017, Didi and Jasper had a successful Clutch 2 and in June, 2017, Clutch 3.

The eggs were abandoned and did not hatch.
Hans and Didi had their first clutch in 2014 and were very successful. During the hatch of their 5th clutch, Hans went missing. Didi has remained to continue raising the clutch. Supplemental food was supplied by the site owners and all of the owlets successfully fledged. Many generous viewers made donations to help purchase the supplemental food. During this time, a new male owl, named Jasper, mated with Didi and adopted the owlets in the clutch.
