I made some pictures of the sweet Owls
about 0:25

Yesterday I opened the cam and from the right appeared an arm catching the owls and I read that they would undergo an inspection of health and weight etc. Before that the small ones did hear anything and both went together in an edge - frightened what will happen now. But later on they were sitting and waiting for food like all the time before. Everything seems to be okay again :loveshower:

This is "Athene noctua" - I read at the moment. And I ask me why I didn't found earlier this nice animal to observe. I don't know the language of the Netherland and so I thought I couldn't understand their reports, but now I see it is not too important to know everything - I can see the littles growing without words :bounce: :bounce:

Bleggi,you can always do 'a google translation' and watch the video clips that are listed on the right of the cam-space !
Or...you can remember to come back next year and watch again. The storks are still there and one peregrine chick too. :D
I must mention all the video clips of The Nutatch too. Very good. (that cam is good as well but the 7 chicks have fledged.)

This are the pics of 19th - I wrote about that the birds were took from the nest to look about their health etc.
They were so anxious when they heard steps or something outside
Image

then a hand appeared - can you imagine my face, when I saw it after opening the cam?
Image

Everything went well - they came back.
Big one has 157,5 gram length of wing is 120 mm; smaller one 137,8 gram length of wing 119 mm - this I took from the report - hopefully it will be correct translated. :2thumbsup:

My cat (avatar) was sitting here with me watching the clip of of the weighing of the Little Owls and when she saw the arm reaching into the nest she took fright.. sat up and stared at the screen :shock: !! Then she ran away..lol.. :rolleyes:
The past two nights the owl chicks have been out on the porch there (cam 2 and 3 ).
The mother is coming to the ledge to feed them then. :D

I don't know any word in the Netherland language and so I did not find where I can watch videos of this birds or the other ones from this cam. So I found out how to print pictures and change them into jpg and I was glad to be able to put them here.
Now I know about the videos for watching and enjoying the little ones inside and outside of their nest. :loveshower:

One of the Little Owls has fledged...against his will. He got in a scuffle with a pigeon in the 'hallway' of the nest and flew/fell outside. :mrgreen:
Owl No 2 seems quite lonely now. :cry:

This is a very sad news from the little owls.
I don't know how old the little ones are. When the fallen owl is old enough she will climb a tree and the parents will continue feeding - I think to remember of/to the estonian owl from last year. At that time I red much about this birds and since that time I love them so much.
I saw in the video that pigeons went into their home. Let us hope that the left owl is not too sad and keep on growing and loving their life.

Bleggi I don't think for a moment the pigeon hurt the owl chick. That pigeon you can see in the video was bringing sticks to re-build her nest. Many times the pigeon has tried to do this,even laying an egg there :slap: All she is interested in is building her nest.
See a video of one of the fights with the pigeon. Mrs Owl has chased that pigeon more times than I can count. :banghead:

Obviously, she is with child and very defensive. I'll subdue her with this large piece of wood. (c) Raccoon Willie

I saw the video where a parent was feeding worms - luck for the owl, bad luck for the worms. But the video is very nice and I hope that good food dispels sadness for being alone... 8-)
Thank you for consolation :hi: .
abvgd: nice pictures you show - they are so clear, better than mine.
