Some types of larger owls nest in barns in the top/loft area on the flat surface of the loft. Most farmers leave them to be in the aerie because they keep the rodent population down. In downtown Toronto there are quite a few office towers who created nest/aeries on a deep ledge in plain sight of office windows where you can see owls hawks kestrels and more nesting. The area is flat with ledges built up to keep the nest area intact and allow chicks to be safe.


This also allows ornithologists and bird veterinarian's and students access to study breeding and health of these amazing birds in captivity.



So it would be normal to see a drunk and disorderly fat head laying down on the ledge area in a loft or on some flat aerie of an office tower.



Now ... burrowing owls are smaller and not such fat heads and their nest is underground so they wouldn't need to lay down like a drunken lout and show the world how silly they look.



A few of my favorite birb cams around the city to view and other birb cams in Ontario Canada.


CPF - Mississauga Centre Web Camera


The Canadian Peregrine Foundation - Webcam Menu

AND .... if you want to spend a day watching Nature being Natural ..... this animal cam of everything and anything is well worth checking out.

The safari cams are brilliant ... bringing all types of animals to a watering hole to drink daily.

The property is a protected sight where poaching and hunting is not allowed .... the cams are constantly moving and following the many types of wildlife.

Thank you for your thorough information! I now feel as wise as an owl! 🦉

And the links to the wildlife cams are a wonderful resource to refer to, again and again. ❤️️

Snowy owls are ground nesting so being face down isn't too much of a difficult task I love their downy grey plumage!
