Estonian Tawny Owl Webcam 2015

Another year with our Tawny Owl Webcam begins! Hopefully Klaara & Klaus will return to their nestbox, so that we can follow their breeding season.

Many thanks to Renno for this cam!

The nestbox is located not far from human settlements, so we will hear sounds of cars, tractors, lawn mower and even human voices from time to time.

Incubation time is between 28 and 30 days, expected amount of eggs between 2 and 6.

Last season 5 eggs were laid and all hatched, but only 3 owlets survived and left the nestbox.
Also this year we can´t expect that all hatched owlets will grow up. The owlets which are too small and weak to fight for their share of food and won´t survive this hard competition, will be fed to surviving owlets by the female Tawny Owl.
It is a food source that can´t be wasted, Tawny Owls behaviour can not be measured with our human ethic understanding.
Camera won´t be switched off, things will be shown as they happen in this real wildlife.

Please be aware of this, especially when you watch this cam with your children!
