basically in german, but if there is a good book write in english it is also nice.
Perhaps anyone has good tip to me?
Manu, I have received the book "Greifvögel & Eulen" (still waiting for the Bezzel). A good overview with short introductions some of the more important or better known birds of prey and owls with pictures, some of the really nice ones! A good beginner's book, I would say, or if you just need some quick information on a bird.

It will surely, did you order it in Switzerland or also from a German source? I saw one today for 0,99 €, postage was three times the amount! :faint:

"Einhard Bezzel, Greifvögel" : I order in Germany
and
"Die Greifvögel Europas, Nordafrikas und Vorderasiens" : I order here in Switzerland. But they sent me an email, the delivery will be at the earliest on Aug 8.
But it's not a problem, at the moment I haven't time to read a lot.

I´m happy that I can tell you that I got an e-mail from Kitty :shake:

She wants me to tell you that she is "basically okay" but wasn´t able to reach her computer for many days now, to log in here or watch the cams.
If Kitty is able to go to the computer she will try to give us a note.

:wave: Thank you, everyone, for all your wishes for my healing. I made a decision a few days ago to just not attempt coming downstairs to the computer & to sleep as much as possible to see if that would help healing. Today I felt better & so far have been able to sit here for a time with more comfort than before. I have been feeling rather depressed due to my restrictions, so I hope things continue to improve slowly so I will feel better both physically & in spirit.

Indeed Kitty...your fall coming on top of hosp. stay for pneumonia you have had a lot to cope with. Take things easy but maybe looking in here now and again will raise your spirits.
There's never a dull moment here. :wave: The nestings are all coming to a close,so you can see how successful they all have been.
