Mollie the Owl - Egg Watching

Found this site on Facebook today . . . it is pretty cool and a great teaching opportunity for kids.  Apparently Mollie, a female barn owl, has laid several eggs and are due to hatch any day.  There is a webcam watching her progress.  From the website:
This is a live feed of a wild mother barn owl that has just started setting on her eggs. The owl box is located in our backyard in San Marcos, CA and is 15 feet off the ground. She appears to be a first time mom. The owl is about 14 inches tall. She laid her first egg on February 13th. We are expecting owlets around mid to late March. Incubation is 30 to 34 days. owlets will hatch in order laid.
Enjoy!
