It turns out that in Russian it is called an owl - Sitsch (German transcription)

In Czech it is sýček (pronounced seeczech :mrgreen: )

those israeli owlets lie down for sleep! how awkward :)

In Israel, more than 21-29 gr. The young hot-may be why they lie?

It might well be 29 degrees - the place is in the Jordan valley and 200 m below sea level (gets up to 40 degr. in mid summer). They just lie down stretched out like ... like lazy cats, with legs stretched out - not at all bird like! They breathe very fast, with their beaks open ...

Also, there's a huge difference in size - I read a Barn Owl starts breeding right after laying the first egg, and there were 10 eggs here (one laid every other day), of which 7 hatched, and there's 5 chicks left now, so they hatched 8 days apart. Yes, they look a little scary! They still miss all the feathers around their faces, but I like to watch - I never saw a Barn Owl cam in a place with so much daylight coming in - allowing to see the real colours in the day time.

Meanwhile, our Little Owl mama doesn't allow us a glimpse of what's happening beneath her ... yet.

now that I think about it, seeing the young hooknoses in the israelian heat: doesn't owlets need to drink some water from time to time? Or do the parents also bring it to them by beak???

I only just found this Barn Owl webcam, via this German-language forum that started some days ago and they reported seeing 7 chicks on May 4. Apart from the 2 links I posted earlier, I only found this article where it tells about the 10 eggs, of which at the time of writing, 7 had hatched.
I assume the 2 smallest ones have died (probably lack of food), and, sadly, might have served as food for the older siblings (something we saw happen in the Little Owl family in the Dutch webcam last year ...).

To end on a more positive note: do read about this Barn Owl and Kestrel project - it is good to read about such cooperation, as well between farmers and environmentalists (from the point of replacing pesticides by natural hunters as owls and falcons) as the cooperation between Jordanians and Israelis in the Jordan valley (this news often doesnot reach us in the West).

--> Little Owl mama is feeding the very little chicks ...

It is encouraging to see that there is a lot of lively interest in owls of various types.
Shall we have another topic for Owls, wherever they are seen?

We could transfer some these non-Tawny Owl posts to start a new topic. What do you want?

I think opening another topic would be lovely -- keep our friendly community and give us a chance to follow other cams (and to educate me about the other cams). :headroll:
