Latvian Dabas Dati forum topic:
The nest of Eurasian eagle-owl is located in Latvia in Kurzeme region. The nesting area is known since 1998, when the natural nesting place was found on the ground. After several unsuccessful nesting cases on the ground, the artificial nest was build in spruce, about 10 m in height. Since 2013 the nesting is successful. The nest is so big, that a grown man might curl in it!
Right now the Eurasian eagle-owl female has laid two eggs, the male is nearby and guards the nest all day.

Currently Mom Eagle Owl on the nest, dozing or observing vicinity, can´t see her face
A short glimpse of one of the eggs, when she got up and shook her feathers and hooting a bit

Ahhh .... Vērotāja from Latvian forum got a better pic - there are three eggs already
March 27th, 2017, 3:38 pm
Wow! Bea, these are wonderful news! We will watch Bubo bubo again!
March 27th, 2017, 3:53 pm
wow I am happy I love Owl`s and the the place is very nice
March 27th, 2017, 4:00 pm
I am curious whether the cam will have night view .... so that one can follow their doings during the night, as they are night active birds
March 27th, 2017, 4:21 pm
Beautiful, I'm happy
March 27th, 2017, 5:58 pm
Maybe I am completely wrong - but could this be Dad Eagle Owl guarding the nest?
In best camouflage?

19:04 female call
March 27th, 2017, 7:16 pm
it's hard to see Bea
March 27th, 2017, 7:17 pm
19:13 female away
March 27th, 2017, 7:39 pm
19:21 female back
March 27th, 2017, 7:45 pm
Ohhhhh .... wonderful - the cam has night view
And no - it was most likely not the male in the next tree
Would have been very close to the female, usually they prefer a bit more distance.
March 27th, 2017, 7:48 pm
19:33 female away
19:40 female back
yes Bea, night view
March 27th, 2017, 8:34 pm
..not really night view, but beautiful and good sounds
March 27th, 2017, 8:38 pm
No constant night view as it seems ...
Short after the female was away at 19:33, the male was on the nest for short time - hard to see because of the difficult light/night view conditions at that time.
I suppose the female was out because he had handed her prey over on a certain place out of cam view.
He was there to admire the eggs
* out again, before SHE comes home again

Oh how lucky we are to watch bubos! Big thanks to the Latvians.
Urmas Sellis writes in the front page of Looduskalender that the night view will come at some point in the future.
