Tawny Owl Nest Camera | April 2019 | Laying Eggs & Incubating

The female tawny owl has laid eggs. She is two weeks later than usual and for a while I was worried she wasn’t going to lay at all. Owls are unlike other birds in that they begin to incubate as soon as the first egg is laid. This means that the chicks hatch at different intervals and vary in size inside the nest. A tawny owl typically lays 2/3 large white eggs roughly every two days and will incubate each egg for 30 days.

First tawny eggs of the season

Every day last month I have been worried about the tawny owls. The female looked seriously unwell and I didn’t expect her to survive. The male didn’t seem to be 100% either. So I’m absolutely delighted to report that the female is now fully recovered and has laid two eggs!  Watch the video to see how loved up this pair are and how she lays her eggs. Watch how delighted the female is with herself, if an owl could grin – this would be it. Enjoy!
