Could be... it was the first delivery I´ve seen there. :thumbs:
I also saw another GHO in Vian, Oklahoma this morning (local time). This is actually a Bald Eagle nest, but their nesting failed and the eggs are dead now (or now there´s only one, but there were two eggs)...
A Great Horned Owl was checking this nest and the egg last evening and this morning.

Very fascinating what is happening at the Sequoyah nest in Oklahoma (USA).
Now is the 4th day the Great Horned Owl has been at the Bald Eagle nest. And the GHO has been brooding the non-viable egg of the Bald Eagles... :rolleyes:

There was an update on that site, stating this:
Quote:
6 February 2013: You may have been watching the Great Horned Owl that has adopted the abandoned eagle egg in the Sequoyah eagle nest. This is an interesting phenomena, but not completely surprising. Female birds (and some males) are stimulated to incubate eggs, when influenced by hormones, and often may incubate almost any eggs in the vicinity when in that hormonal condition. Most females will not incubate eggs at other times. It is likely that this owl had either lost her own clutch of eggs, but is still in the incubation phase of reproductive condition, or has come into “reproductive readiness” but has not bred. In either case she might be stimulated by the sight of the egg to incubate. This “incubating drive” will likely dissipate within a few days or could possibly continue for longer, even until the dead eagle egg explodes.

http://www.suttoncenter.org/pages/live_eagle_camera

I hope for this female great horned owl that she will have lost her incubating drive before that dead abandoned eagle egg explodes. It might be my imagination but it reminds me of covering a handgrenade with your body and wait for it to explode. :mrgreen:

I heard today that the GH Owl on Sequoyah nest (Vian) has laid an egg of her own. :shake:

The GHO in Sequoyah has now laid two eggs of her own (and then she also incubates the non-viable eagle egg).
Video clip from last night. Recorded by crayj46. Mom owl gets up and there are 3 eggs. :headroll:


GHO has also laid an egg in Wolf River Eagle nest, Wisconsin, USA. It is known as a Bald Eagle nest, but the eagles haven´t returned yet. (Last year they returned in the end of February). Video by urdognu.

I saw an empty nest in Sequoyah just tonight and read this from the cam:
Quote:
26 February 2013: The Great Horned Owl persisted in incubating her remaining egg during the snowstorm of about a week ago and continued doing so during several days of nicer weather after the storm. Then another storm system moved through bringing cold rain during the past day or so, and the Sequoyah NWR nest camera was off again for a while. The camera came on about midday today revealing an empty nest. The camera was not operational when the owl and the egg disappeared, so we do not know the extact cause. It is disappointing for the second attempt in this nest to fail this season. We are continuing to work behind the scenes to get another nest on line this season, and while it may happen soon if things go well, we don't yet know for sure if or when it will happen

Sad news,she had 2 eggs of her own as well as the abandoned eagle egg. :cry:

Meanwhile in the Netherlands a pair of Eurasian Eagle Owls is awaiting their owlets, and estimated hatch time will be somewhere around march 22nd.

Link to the cam: http://volgdeoehoe.nl/


There's a second cam too, close to the nest at the spot where the male owl delivers the prey items not directly delivered to the actual nest, but that cam isn't online for the public as far as I understood. But this cam has given some spectacular material.

Mating: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gj-fCOBG9N4


And here a video of a lil' daredevil of a European Polecat who has the guts to check that spot where the male delivers prey for his female. He's very lucky the first time, but instead of calling it a day after surviving the initial attack by those huge razorsharp eagle owl claws, he decides not to leave, a cardinal mistake....: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eu97WR8kVg8

Thanks. And how many eggs are there?

Two confirmed eggs, but possible a third too.

The local forester keeps people away from the nesting site and urges the public to watch the webcam instead of trying to get a glimpse, and possibly scare away the eagle owls, and even the local police is involved to keep an eye on the eagle owls and secure their safety and wellbeing. After all there are only 7-10 breeding pairs of these fantastic and precious owls in the Netherlands.

Thanks for the link to the Long-eared Owl cam, Kitty KCMO. :thumbs:
