An hour before the departure from the nest both jostled in the flight opening

The weather is summery hot, hurries on nature as well as bird chicks.

The owlets waited until the sunset period to leave the nest almost at the same time and together.

Today they were a month old and at least according to memory at that age owlets have not left earlier. Neither has it happened that owlets have returned to the nest …

All the best to you, and stand courageous against all dangers!.

The nice nest log for owls Ahto installed in the medium-aged spruce forest in January the year before last knowing that RMK would be felling  the neighbouring older forests – which was also done.

“I didn’t go specially to check  the nest log but last week one night I noticed an owl flying at low height towards the nest log. Next morning I went to check and the owl was in the trunk and so I set up a trail camera.”

The larger owl chick begs for food

The weeks pass quickly.

It is not easy with food for the owl family but female Klaara does her best  – catching passerines, seldom the staple food of owls this year, small rodents, moles, frogs, earthworms but also bats.

By today all owl chicks have hatched.

 

A brief survey: on March 30 we could see the first egg in the nest. The next eggs Klaara laid on April 2 and 5.

 

When exactly one month had passed, or on April 30, a chick hatched from the first egg, the second on May 1, and the last on May 3.

Klaara shows an interest in Klaus’s doings around the nest trunk by hooting

We will look a  little while back in time on what has happened and is happening in the  tawny owl  nest hollow, and briefly forward.

Klaara laid the first egg into the nest hollow in the trunk on March 30th, the next ones on  April 2nd and 5th: so it works for tawny owls, with intervals of a couple of days. It seems that the egg clutch is complete.

When evening begins wings have to be stretched for a bit.

Observing the peaceful home life in the owl nest we can see that female Klaara has three eggs in the nest in the tree trunk.

So the first egg on March 30th, the second one on April 2nd and the third on April 5th. Let us hope that the clutch is complete

The Estonian Ornithological Society chose the tawny owl as the bird of the year for 2009. Since then we have watched the breeding of a tawny owl pair – Klaus and Klaara - nesting in Lääne County. We are not quite convinced that we still have to do with the same Klaus and Klaara since from the exterior it is not possible to tell birds from different years apart.
