Nothing unusual happened in the meantime. The two owls are sitting in their home during the day more or less - until evening. During the night they are still out.
One is sitting inside (sleeping well)
Image
the other one in the other room :mrgreen: (cleaning)
Image
and sometimes I see them appear outside before one is leaving
Image

They are to watch often while cleaning not only their own - also the other one. Today a very big pigeon was sitting outside. One owl was sitting in her bedroom and calling very loud - calling long enough until the other owl appeared and the pigeon left. I hope it will be better this year than last year when a pigeon threw a little owl out of the home.

I am new to this forum but not new to the Steenuils. I am very excited about the first egg being laid and look forward to watching another new Steenuil family. Thank you for letting me join this forum.

Welcome on our Owlside - I love this bird and I am happy that you are with me now. I am waiting for the next egg - let us see when it will happen.
Greetings from Bleggi :hi:

There you find nice videos - you dont have to understand the language. Sorry that there are no sides in english or german.

She is a good mom. So nice to see a second egg. The new doorway to the outdoors, I am guessing it is to discourage the other birds. I am sometimes concerned that the hole is too small? The owls seem to struggle a little to get in and out.

RPP: I watched the little owls last year and saw some of the videos. Some pigeons went in the little house more often and in the end they threw out one of the small ones. I was crying when I saw it.
Its like a treasure to watch the videos but also being able to watch the owls life.
Regards from Bleggi :hi:

edit: I just watched the last video (24th) where an owl brought a larva and held it to the egg for feeding. But the egg did not like it and so the owl kept it flying away with it.

:hi: Some other people are concerned about the size of the entrance hole as well but the Little Owl seems to be coping and its much better than the worry of pigeons nesting in the halllway entrance,like last year (and the year before. :rant: ). So many people complained then but the reply was 'Its Nature,we cannot interfere' !

Bleggi thank you for the news everyday. :nod:

I see one egg way over to the right, and the other two close together ... does that mean anything?

There is a video about the third egg and that the little owl needed three steps to get the eggs together. That is done in the meanwhile. But yesterday there was another thing that me worried! Not a thing, but a pigeon:

Today I noticed, that we dont see a second owl in the left room, when he it sitting on the right side. I saw the Lady-Owl sleeping on the left side, turned to the cam of the middle room and saw a bird slipping into it from the left side. Going back there was still sleeping the first owl I saw.

Since some days Lady Owl is sitting on her eggs most of the time. Mr. Owl brings food - sometimes a mouse but most of the time he brings "meikever" maybugs. One day he brought one in the livingroom. She took it, worked a bit on it and brought it in the other room. Here she put sometimes what she doesnt like to eat at once. She left to her eggs and sat down. But the maybug was not dead and walked a bit and was hiding between two pieces of wood on the floor.
Later on Lady Owl heard anything scratching and went to have a look what happens over there. She found the meal and ate it at once.
In the evening she left sometimes, but not very long. Its too dangerous to let the eggs alone. I am looking forward to the babies of her that will come soon, I hope. Then I will keep you informed about it.
Greetings Bleggi
