Tawny owl     Kodukakk      Strix aluco

 

In the video we can hear the voices of the adults, how male Klaus lets Klaara know that she might come to have an evening meal. After some time he himself comes to the nest with a rodent which he offers to Klaara  but then decides to check in the nest hollow whether the hatching of the owl chicks is in progress  since Klaara did not leave the nest on being called. …

During the Easter holidays the hatching of the first owl chicks is likely. As a reminder, Klaara laid her eggs into the nest hollow on March 16th, 19th, 22nd, 24th and 28th. The incubation period is calculated to last a month which however may be influenced by cold weather.

In any case,interesting times are coming .
