Indeed! They grew up so quickly; it really does amaze me how quickly they grow up.

I really want to see them go out and try to fly for the first time....I doubt I'll be able to catch that event though. xD

I see that, some of the down fur of the baby is being replaced by feathers now! Right now their sleeping, and there is some of the downfeather in the way of the screen. xD

Oh oh, they're up now^^ I love it when they bob their heads around in odd ways; it's incredibly how flexible their necks are.

Aww, their very cute now with their feathers coming in. =3 And they do look very flexible by the way they move about.

It's so funny how Molly has a fan page, and there is a book called "Molly the Owl Book" written by Eric Blehm. ^^

They seemed to have added in an extra camera, this time grayscaled, to the webcame. That's quite interesting actually.
Although, I find it very distracting. xD

I think that Molly having a fan page is quite reasonable, it is really popular after all. So, naturally, it would end up having a fanpage. Though, the book sounds quite interesting, I'll have to take a look into that.

Yeah, they have all sort of merchandise for Molly^^ I wouldn't mind getting the book though; it seems cute. =3

The grayscale one is the night cam. Wonder why they have them both on now....

Well, the last broadcast was on the 20th, so I guess we'll just have to wait and see if Molly has another clutch in the future so you all can see from when Molly broods the eggs to when the chicks leave the nest. =3

Well, this year Molly won't be broadcasted, but I found a new live stream with two owls, Mel and Sydney, in Oceanside, CA. So I'm going to update the first post with those urls, and I'll post them below as well:

Sydney has seven eggs; yeah, seven. Hopefully that'll be it. xD
So if you guys want to, the eggs haven't hatched yet, so you can watch the owlets hatch from the beginning and watch them grow up over the next few months. =3
