SURPRISE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

Students at Shadow Ridge High School in Surprise are getting some real-life wildlife lessons right on campus.

A pair of owls has returned to the high school for the second year in a row.

The owls, affectionately named Shadow and Ridge, came back to Arizona to lay their eggs.

The school offers a warm welcome to the feathered visitors and keeps the nest at the front of the school well-protected.

As of Friday, there is one egg in the nest.

Usually, the owls can be spotted all around campus. 

But right now, the mama owl is wisely keeping a careful watch over the area.

The Shadow Ridge Student Resource Officer and City of Surprise police officer Wendy Klarkowski have been spearheading the "owl project" on campus.

And "whooo"-ever wants to watch the owls can get a birds-eye view, thanks to live stream cameras set up on campus.

You can watch the owls using the live stream links below.
