Take a look at this.We have two new (babys) Great Horned Owl's born in our tree in the front yard! We were told they come back every year to lay there eggs here in our tree. We have been watchin them through the winter month's here in The Villages, FL. Two cute little baby's poped their heads up out of the nest 4 days ago. My wife named-um "Hoot & Annie" :lol: :lol: :lol: 8-) Here are some pic's!!!!

Too cute! Thanks for the pictures! Keep them coming. They usually don't nest close to alot of people or noise, they must think your tree is a safe place. :D

That is cool and they must feel secure to be there.

That's cool!! After they leave the nest, you need to install a wireless, remote controlled webcam so you can watch them up close next year. :D

Like they do for the Eagles in Iowa: http://www.ustream.tv/channel-popup/decorah-eagles

I wonder if CDBG (Community Development Block Grant) money would work for something like this? There are also some Enviromental Trust Funds through your town that might be available. If not, check with your county government for the same type of funds. The Audubon Society sometimes gets involved with things like this as well because they sometimes have webcams set up.

Just some ideas.

In answer to your 2 questions - NO and NO. ;) :lol:

Although Beaver's reply has some good possibilities. :) :) You might want to check them out. We may be watching your front yard tree on ustream next year.

Remember tomorrow is President's Day and is considered a Federal Holiday which means many municipalities, banks, post offices across the United States will be closed on Monday.

Also a lot of this type of funding is controlled by your local Board of Selectman or City Council. You may have to go through the Town Manager and be added to the agenda of your next Select Board or City Council Meeting.

Before going to these people, do your research and find out what funds are available in your area before approaching whoever you approach. Whoever thought my knowledge and experience in local politics would come in handy on this site.

I hope you don't have alot of cats in the neighborhood. My uncle used to have a family of owls in his barn every year and they came back every year. He also put out some raw chicken for the mama owl so she wouldn't have to leave the nest for very long or go very far. Just a suggestion :D Take good care of Hoot and Annie, especially Annie :D :D

You might want to contact the Raptor Resource Project. They are the ones who set up the Eagle cam.

They may have some suggestions.
