Liz01, thanks for video! :thumbs:
So interestingly. He at first looks there where Peteris climbed. Then on the camera. Again upward. Again on the camera. As though everything understands. :laugh:

Sonchik, you're welcome :laugh:
:hi: I here already was. :laugh: I am signed on a subject. But here almost nothing occurred from the moment of my registration. Therefore I watched old videos, thanks to all for them!

Still I have a question why every year people build this fence of branches? Birds cannot cope with preparation of a nest?

This fence is as a protection, so that the owlets do not fall down. I'm thankfully for that :2thumbsup:

Description from the latvian nest
The nest is build by humans. The nesting area is known since 1998, when the natural nesting place was found on the ground. After several unsuccessful nesting cases on the ground, the artificial nest was built in spruce, about 10 m in height.


Description Wiki:
.....Like all owls, Eurasian eagle-owls do not build nests or add material but nest[ on the surface or material already present. Eurasian eagle-owls normally nest on rocks or boulders, most often utilizing cliff ledges and steep slopes, as well as crevices, gullies, holes or caves. Rocky areas that also prove concealing woodlots as well as, for hunting purposes, that border river valleys and grassy scrubland may be especially attractive. If only low rubble is present, they will nest on the ground between rocks.Often, in more densely forested areas, they’ve been recorded nesting on the ground, often among roots of trees, under large bushes and under fallen tree trunks. Steep slopes with dense vegetation are preferred if nesting on the ground, although some ground nests are surprisingly exposed or in flat spots such as in open spots of the taiga, steppe, ledges of river banks and between wide tree trunks.

Then he starts calling for Bo. He called differently today. And I think I heard Bo call far away :puzzled:

Liz, my photos are just snapshots. I am hunting in different nests and in the job and family but I enjoy every live encounter with one of my favorite birds. ;)

I am very grateful for your intensive observation, beautiful photos and documentation of many nests. You, Sova and many more ... I can not list all the names but I have them all in my head. :loveshower:

On the subject:

I heard no answer to Bubo's call. Not only today - never.

Do we have an unfortunate situation like 2018?

Polly, I think we have to wait until the end of February. 2017 the eggs were laid in March.
So there is still enough time. Of course, it is possible that they choose a different location. I keep my fingers crossed that Bo thinks the nest is acceptable. :2thumbsup:

The prelude. :D

I think this animal is very nice anyway. Even without breeding and rearing. I'm happy about the opportunity to see what else I can only hear.
