Watch barn owls raise their chicks on an “Owl Cam”

Frida and Diego are two barn owls that live in a nestbox in the attic of a warehouse in Benicia, CA. A video camera was installed in the nest box a few years ago and you can actually watch the owls live (24/7) as they incubate their eggs and raise their chicks. To date, this year, Frida has layed four eggs.

It’s a fun Web site. Check it out at:

    Been watching these guys thru 2 clutches now; what fun!! Gary, do you think these two are REALLY Frida & Diego, or symbolically Frida & Diego? (Meaning different owls from past years?) I read somewhere that the lifespan of these guys can only be a couple years, so I’m curious.

    Hi Gary,
    found your nice video clips on Frida & her chicks at youtube. I saw that 2 of the babies dissappeared between 2007-4-19 and 2007-4-27. Studying this disappearence of young barn owls I woulb be very much interested to know and perhaps to see on your video how this happened.
    best greetings and a godd year 2010
