Alessondra's OKC Great Horned Owl-Cam
Pets, Animals - Birds
Welcome to Alessondra's Great Horned Owl Cam, Live from Oklahoma City
Alessondra's thrilled that you've visited the Ustream feed dedicated to "Mrs. Tiger" and her owlets on our second-story planter ledge. As homeschooling parents who believe every experience in life has educational value, we've set up cameras to help get a better view of the entire experience, and we have gladly made it available to the rest of the world. Though this year's owlets, Tigris & Teegra, have already fledged, we invite you to check out our video archive of some of the great highlights of this year's nest.

Redferne grew up with a German Shepard that taught him how to track, observe, and listen while on long walks in woods. His first real introduction to wildlife was a baby robin which he fed and cared for on his nightstand as a boy. Its first release, learning to fly, it was ambushed by a cat that vanished into the woods. From that point he was hooked on nature and all of its mysteries.
