I looked back again, there are very odd light spots -- but they are only there in the night (my afternoon).

I wonder if the barn owl's kids are alright. They look quite exhausted and weak.

It's true that it gets real hot in the valley (30-35 C up to 42 in mid summer and being 200 m below sea level), but I think they manage. After all, loads of Barn Owl couples + offspring survive in that area.
Here's what it looked like yesterday around 1 AM:

I'll add a clip where they were having breakfast later (plenty of food as it seems).

The video is cute and they all look a little better than when I last watched them.


The Dutch Little Owls are really grown up -- they are no longer little white puffs of fluff. They have colour and some owl looks now.

Little Dutch Owls
One of the many feedings this afternoon (night). The parents have been arriving every few minutes and the babies seem very hungry!

Thank you
It looks like someone is still in the nest -- almost out of view. I am watching the recent videos to see. I am only sure I see one in the nest - BUT there is plastic in the box! Us humans really need to get the plastic out of the environment.
The peregrines in Winnipeg are only a 2-3 days old. Such a huge contrast.

In the little Dutch owls
http://www.beleefdelente.nl/steenuil
this video 31-05: Lijster ligt dwars
is quite the sight. It is a little bit much, but seeing the tiny owl carry this huge prey (maybe a starling or a thrush) is impressive.

About the dutch peregrines..
Beside the nestbox is a little border, walking over it the peregrines can walk towards the roof of the building.
And that is exactly what three of them did, so they are exploring the big world on the roof.
Sometimes you can see them on cam 2.

The Dutch little owlets are so big! I was on holiday without internet access last week and they really have grown a lot meanwhile. Although, of course, they are tiny - I guess they must be about the size of an adult tit now, only more ruffled and with bigger head... :unsure:

Not an Owl but since we have discussed several of the birds on the dutch cams.

I still have never seen anything live at the Kestrel site (I guess that is what it is) http://www.beleefdelente.nl/torenvalk but some of the videos are interesting
this one for example 27-04: Illegale babysit

And the videos from the peregrines are nice -- especially on the balcony where they seem to come up to investigate the cam and you can see their beautiful colours.

AND in the owls -- the survival of the kicker!
