WATCH: Baby owl born on Oklahoma City ‘OwlCam’
OKLAHOMA CITY – For those of you who could spend hours and hours looking at photos of baby kittens and screaming goats on the internet, we have a story for you!
A mother owl has cozied up to an Oklahoma family and laid eggs in their window box.
They now have at least one new addition.
Jeff and Deziray Click live in the Rose Creek addition in northwest Oklahoma City.
It is a golf course community, hardly the kind of nature preserve where you might expect an owl to lay her eggs.
However, for the fifth year in a row, a mother owl has roosted in a window box outside of the Click’s theater room.
The owl father hunts rats and mice and flies them to the nest.
The mother owl has laid eggs again this year and one just hatched.
Jeff Click set up a webcams to share this with the world.
Owl experts and bird rehab specialists have flocked to watch online in droves.
So far, more than 3 million viewers have logged on to watch.
It has been quite a lesson for 8-year-old Alessondra Click, a home-school third-grader.
Alessondra has given several presentations to school children in a home-school co-op and at a nearby elementary school.
