Sitsch? German transcription? Sorry, but I'm afraid, I don't understand :puzzled:

Thanks to Urmas for the pictures - indeed they look like confident owls now. Whaw. So good to see them alive in their natural surroundings!

The Little Owl webcam (beleefdelente)- yes, the 2nd chick has hatched and the 3rd egg is opening, acc. to the forum. You can hear Ma making soft sounds!

Btw - I found another interesting Owl webcam site here: http://video.tau.ac.il/General/birds/
It's a Barn Owl, or Tyto alba, or Loorkakk in Estonian. The nestbox is up in the watertower of a kibbutz in Israel, near the Jordanian border. Some data about the project here: http://www.birdlife.org/news/news/2009/ ... srael.html and http://www.owls.org/Whatis/pest_control.htm .

Sitsch (but I'd rather say Sytch) is the russian name for Little Owl ) The cyrillic is Сыч.

You know the movie "The dark cristal" from Jim Henson? They look like little "Skekse" :mrgreen:

but of course, they will become dignified and nice owls like their parents
