A webcam of Molly the barn owl and her hatching chicks went viral last year. Millions of people around the global watched, some dubbing themselves as having Molly Obsessive Disorder. Well, now Marin County has its very own barn owl live streaming video capturing the every move of two young birds, who have yet to be named. [Marin Independent Journal]

    Could you please provide us with the link to the Marine web cam?
    Also it was 2010 that Molly “went viral” not “several years ago”.
    2010 was last year.

    Hi Janice – Thanks for posting. We try to encourage readers to go to the original story so that those news outlets benefit from their work, hence the lack of a link. But here it is: http://www.hungryowl.org. It goes live Thursday.

    And thanks for the correction. The Molly cam went viral in 2010.
