WE ARE HOPING TO RAISE $10,000 TO INSTALL A WEBCAM AT ORC
As many of you know we are lucky to have some amazing foster parents as education birds. We want to raise enough money to install a webcam in the owl box of resident Barn Owls, Tito and Alba. During nesting season, these two raise different groups of orphaned Barn Owlets. We think it would be extremely interesting and informative to have a camera in their nest box to watch them foster nestling Barn Owls. We would have the unique privilege of witnessing their daily lives. We would see things like feeding, preening, sibling Barn Owl relationship dynamics, growth from nestling to fledgling, and Tito and Alba's parenting. We have been in touch with several groups about the installation and costs of a camera and we estimate it will be about $10,000.
If this is something you would like to see at ORC.org,
Below, the first photo is a snap of foster owlets from last nesting season. The camera would be mounted inside the nesting box so we could see the entire family.
