Eagle owl       Kassikakk        Bubo bubo


Looduskalender's watchers at once recognize the location of the web camera  at the nest of .the white-tailed eagle pair. In winter members of the Kotkaklubi repaired and secured the nest bottom that fell apart during the previous season but this year the white-tailed eagles nest in their ”second nest” and so this year there will be no transmission from the white-tail eagle camera. Man proposes, nature disposes.

Tawny owl         Kodukakk         Strix aluco


In the evening tawny owl life started as usual with Klaara flying out from the nest hollow but within an hour she was back. We could guess that there would be an addition to the eggs. As a a well-behaved hunter Klaus shared the prey with Klaara which the video cut shows.

MatsaluBay has frozen to a large open field and the paths of the jackals now in winter seem to run in wider sweeps, the sea is no longer an obstacle that keeps the animals firmly on the shore areas. The tracks of two jackals have been observed  running across the bay.

Small spring-fed streams flow in the hilly landscape where the beaver family is active and has its winter life


Beaver         Kobras ehk piiber         Castor fiber


There is soon cause to discuss the life of beavers – at the end of February their heat period starts.

When a beaver dives, a line of small air bubbles remains along its path. The fur of the animal is not wetted but for this it has to take care. Its fur consists of an extremely dense undercoat through which water cannot penetrate and rougher and longer upper hairs.

The air layer in the undercoat protects the beaver against wetting as well as cooling off.
