"Operation noctua" end of week 14

May 28, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

A very short, belated weekly update from owls-ville Alabama as I've already given two owl-related updates during the week here and here.

We've had a stonking week weather-wise down here (high 20s all week, hardly a cloud in the sky all week) and the owls do seem more urgent this week.

They've also put up with three days of heavy farm plant making silage in their field this week  - in fact I have video clips of one of the owls on the barn roof, watching very indignantly as yet another hyowge noisy tractor passes underneath.

But put up with it they did and both owls are still there - although its probably been a little too hot for their favourite past time of spring - sunbathing.

One of the dutch little owls eggs has hatched (one of three eggs) this week  - you can still follow that family live on the internet here.

 

As for our owls - well.... the trail cam is back in place and I still think at least one egg has hatched in their nestbox and I still hope to see fledged owlets within a fortnight.....
