Oh, you are lucky girls! So many events today!

I usually check archive every day, and open online window for couple minutes in the evening but tonight I ve been busy.
I hope, Bea will post a video here, I would like to see and hear them. :shake:

And due to my inability to speak German I could not understand properly what was reported by EGE. Google translate is sometimes useless soft, :rant:

Now I hear owls calls (21:57) - duet I think.

I haven't seen her walking, but hope, she is no longer limping.

22:30 - 22:32 Never heard this sound near the nestbowl! Nothing to be seen. Was it a chirping bird?

22:40 Movements in the background to be heard since minutes.

What a lot of action on the ledge tonight :loveshower:

Leo was already here earlier, on the below nest, at 20:13




His next visit was at 20:32 - 20:47, but this time on the upper nest, calling for his Lady :)

Leo´s calls were successful, he lured Lotte to the ledge at 21:03 :D



Leo arrived at the down nest at 21:06 and left again at 21:19

Lotte stayed until 21:34, preening and watching vicinity - and at 21:33 we could hear warning calls from her, she saw someone or something she didn´t like very much!


Sorry, video and audio are not 100% sync here :(



Here is a recording of an Eagle Owl´s warning call at xeno-canto

At what time exactly did you all think to hear the owlet??? In my opinion there could have been a third owl only at the time when Lotte made her warning calls, short before she left :puzzled:

Thanks Bea, for your extensive work this evening for all of us Owl lovers. :gathering:

I have only seen a part of Leo's visit and enjoy to watch it whole in your vid.

I guess, only Lotte has given the warning calls, we have heard.
This evening it was the first time for me, to hear these calls live. Interesting!

Thanks Bea , the third owl was clearly to be heard for me at 21.00, short after Leo left.
And during this unknown sound was a second owl to be heard, listen to the video by Mamicja.

At the first moment I had doubts if this is really Leo in the nestbowl. He looked thinner than the last time.

Thank you, romy!

I am wondering whether it was Leo, who was also giving warning calls .... but sometimes there are also sound artefacts, I had this already several times in my recordings :roll:

There are two new pictures in the "Highlights" archive - they show that Leo was at the upper nest bowl on Saturday, 24. September, in the early morning - two times :shake:

I think I never read in the diary on their webpage that results of feather samples were published.

Sometimes Stefan Brücher makes a guess during ringing events, but I can´t remember that he did this year.
Maybe the little one was too small and too much behind in development to make a guess .... and keeping it alive at all was probably most important task at this time ....

Thanks, Bea, I agree with the most important task you have mentioned. And I am very glad that I could witness Stefan s effort to save the owlet. It was just my personal curiosity that led me to ask about sex... since I do not understand German.

28. September

:hi:

Leo arrived on the ledge at 03:59



At 04:17 Leo hears Lotte (voice not sooo close) and his reaction is clear ..... head low, tail high, scratching, walking to the nestbowl, vocalizing :D



He stayed in the nestbowl watching the surrounding until 05:04, then he walked out because he has heard someone and Lotte´s calls can be heard, faint and in a distance. But loud enough for Leo to notice it and so he hoots to her until he leaves the ledge at 05:08

Thanks for videos and comments, Bea. :gathering:
I like especially the second one, which shows Leo's reaction :rolleyes: after the duet with his "sweetheart" Lotte.
