Urmas Sellis writes in the front page of Looduskalender that the night view will come at some point in the future.

Thanks for the hint, Trine!

Maybe alltime night view is still not active to spare battery charge, probably battery is charged with solar panels and night view will take also energy from it .... but additional with the daylight getting longer it will be enough for complete night view.

She flew out again to the left side, I think male delivered breakfast to their handover place. While the male is on the nest one can still hear the delighted calls of the female. As far as I know, these hoarse calls are only made by the females.

Mrs. Eagle Owl flew out at 20:23, after she has been hooting to her husband already a while before, I suppose he delivered dinner for her.
He came to the nest, for his evening egg-control :D but left after a short visit - I think he was on guard on a nearby tree.




Mrs. Eagle Owl returned at 20:33, unfortunately right in the moment when cam switched to night view, it always takes a bit time until picture changes from pixeling and blurry to clear view again.
I took only pictures because of that.

She was finally ready with settling back down on the eggs at 20:37 :rolleyes:

29. March

18:24
Mrs. Eagle Owl changed her position and we have a short view on her three eggs. She didn´t roll them much this time.
After she settled down again she hooted a bit ... maybe telling Mr. Eagle Owl that time for dinner is coming .....

Mrs. Eagle Owl left at 19:35 and returned at 19:45



It always takes a bit time until she is ready with wriggling for finding the best position back on the eggs :D
