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.

Klaus treats Klaara to a prey. Klaara returned early to the nest in the evening


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.

At seven o’clock Klaara went on her evening trip – Klaus called


Tawny owl     Kodukakk        Strix aluco


Yesterday Klaara returned from her evening trip just before midnight. It can be said with certainty that the egg was laid today, March 19th.

So the first egg on March 16th and the second on March 19th. In a full clutch there are often three to five eggs, the interval between layings two or three days.

The rains of the last few  days have reduced the snow cover in southern Estonia significantly. The southerly winds help the movements of migratory birds – life goes steadily towards spring. It is a good time to end  the small bird feeder camera transmission. Our thanks to all viewers!
