Tawny owl   Kodukakk          Strix aluco

 

Klaara had been busy the whole night with feeding the chicks, with only brief intervals, but before daylight, at five o’clock in early morning, she had to go out to stretch her legs …

This view opened to us: three hatched owl chicks and one egg. As we know, the more simultaneously owl chicks hatch, the greater are their chances of staying alive. Klaara has managed Klaus’s hunting schedule well and with the arrival of warmer weather hunting becomes easier. In the nest hollow there must at all times be at least a small reserve store as we see from the image.

Kas esimene „katsikuline“ või juhuslik elupaiga uudistaja…

The first visitor to the new-born or a casual explorer?
