Hi IceAge, I don't understand, 4 hours ago it was perfectly alright, climbing on its siblings. What happened?
That's how it happens, I don't even know when #4 ate last time, it was hungry for days.(((

Hi Maggy, yes, she is, have pictures, but first I like to see an overall view. Maybe when Klaara is going to hunt later on.

Yes, since the larger ones could grab the preys it became very difficult. It is sad. It is very difficult to find out what and when it happened. One moment it was climbing its siblings and then just disappeared under the larger ones until they moved and showed it laying very still.

From 16:00 #4 was not moving very well already, very slow.
Milda who we were talking about, she was bigger, she was the first who made it into the window and she was sitting over there for hours around noon and after that. I didn't go to sleep, I was watching. And then she dropped down and dyed.(((

That is awful, Maggy. While you could say if they are strong enough to climb to the window, they must be alright. I assume they do not show how they actually are doing.

Yes Timea, they are trying to fight till the last moment. And then they are gone.
That's why Shanta didn't want to watch, you never know when it's going to happen.

Klaara leaves

and back after a minute, she "dropped" in, as if being chased by something.

It happens every year in Klaara's nest: the fifth, the fourth and sometimes the third owlets don't survive.
