The tawny owl was chosen as bird of the year for 2009 by the Estonian Ornithological Society. Since then we have followed the nesting of a tawny owl pair in Läänemaa – Klaus and  Klaara. We are not quite certain that we still have to do with the same Klaus and  Klaara, because it is not possible to distinguish between birds from different years by their exteriors.

The average lifetime of tawny owls is held to be five years but the lifetime of the oldest known tawny owl in nature has been eighteen years.

In previous years the tawny owls in the webcam have started their nesting - laid the first egg - on March 1st at the earliest (2009) and on April 6th at the latest  (2010). In the late spring of last year the first egg was in the nest on March 30th.

The adults started visiting the nest site from March 13th.
