Estonian Ural Owl Cam 2016

Post by Bea » March 7th, 2016, 10:42 am

A new camera - Ural Owl (Strix uralensis) :loveshower:



Ural Owls have a size of ~54-61 cm, males are a bit smaller and weigh ca. 700 g, females up to a 1000 g.
Wingspan is 115 - 125 cm.

We can expect 2-6 eggs, in an interval of 2-3 days. Eggs are in size of a small chicken egg, weight ~50 g.
Breeding period is 27-29 days. Only the female is on the eggs, male´s task is to hunt for food and provide the family.
Owlets stay in the nest for 34-35 days, then leave and parent owls feed them for about two more months outside.

Well done You have already found this cam! This Ural Owl nestbox is some kilometers away from my home in Lääne county Noarootsi parish. I installed this nestbox last winter and last season 2015 Ural Owl was breeding there and raised 3 chicks. Therefore I though about this webcam.

Ural Owls do not breed every year and on this owl territory there are other natural breeding places so probability to see breeding in this nestbox is not very high. Nestbox is suitable also to Tawny Owl but haven´t seen or hear owls there in this year - if Ural Owls are still there then they scare smaller owls away.

Last week while installing the webcam there were small feathers of some owl at the nestbox entrance and sawdust outside of the nestbox so somebody have been there. Will see if and when owls visit the nestbox. Ural Owls usally start to breed in the end of March.

While waiting for the nest tenant you can listen to the voices of male and female
