A lot has happened in Holland with the little owls.
The female has already laid the first egg in March and many days later the second egg. It looked as if she was in great pain. Suddenly 1 egg had disappeared. She had eaten it. She hatched the other egg, but there was no chick. Later, the egg stuck to the breast plumage. She took it out. She kept breeding for 10 days without eggs. Then she was "normal" again for a few days, there were pairings and loot gifts from the male. Then came the little miracle, an egg, two eggs and three eggs. Now she is brooding again. Normally, small owls have only 1 brood. I hope everything will be fine now.
Everything is okay. There are 4 healthier cheerful chicks, hatched on 11 and 12 May.
Not many mice, but many insects
