SHSHSH It's so quiet ! Happy 2 months dear eaglets-owlets :loveshower:

This is from wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eurasian_eagle-owl :

"While sibling owls are close in the stage between leaving the nest and fully fledge, about 20 days after leaving the nest, the family unit seems to dissolve and the young disperse quickly and directly. All told, the dependence of young eagle-owls on their parents last for 20 to 24 weeks."

There is very interesting data there; each of us can find it in his language.

I'm curious, have the eagle owlets come back to nest at all in other years? I see other fledged owlets come back like around feeding time briefly (maybe it makes it easier for parent to find them) this is the first nest of eagle owls I have seen. Thanks so much for providing all the great audio/video!
