A pair of owls were found to be nesting in our house in Anaheim Hills in January of 2010. The owls managed to enter through a faulty screening vent in the attic.
There attic is used for storage of seldom accessed items so the owls will remain relatively undisturbed.
In order to not disturb the owls we did not install any form of external lighting other than the low level infrared source provided by this feature of the webcam itself.
To the human eye the owl nest is either in very dim light during the day or total darkness at night. When the color webcam operates in infrared mode, the image provided appears onl
in black and white. For more information on owls, visit:
The below are just a small number of the images that I have been able to locate so far. The webcam originally captured one photo every 6 seconds. Back in 2010, visitors to the
website could view these images live. All of the several thousands of images from the time we first discovered the owls until the time all of the baby owls left the attic for
good have been stored somewhere. The below are just a few of the highlights. As soon as I locate the drive where the other images were saved I'll be posting them to this
website. Please check back at a later date for more images.

All the chicks have been born and are walking around
Not sure why the owls stare at the camera. Maybe it is the infrared light
