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.
The attic is used for storage of seldom accessed items so the owls were rarely disturbed. The lights in the attic were almost never turned on.
These images are visible only because the webcam has a built in infrared light that turns on in dim light. In daylight the images would be in full color.
But when using infrared lighting in darkness, the captured images are in black and white.
To the human eye the owl nest is either in very dim light during the day or total darkness at night.
For more information on owls, visit:
From January through about June of 2010 an image was captured every 6 seconds around the clock. At that time the public was able to visit the web site to view
the owls in real time. Highlights would be posted every few days so that everyone could view some of the images that they missed. Below are just some of those highlights.
The original complete set of thousands of images are saved somewhere. As soon as those other images are located more of them will be posted to this website.
Please check back later 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
