Bring the action!
Like every year, I hear the Little Owls (Athene noctua) screaming nearby but on March 1st, it was the first time that I saw two owls sitting on my birdhouse. One week later, when I came back in the evening from a visit to the moor frog area, I heard them shout as soon as I get out of my car and I knew that they were nearby. One owl was sitting in the birch above the birdhouse. Very slowly I put down my tripod and with a shuttertime of 25 seconds I did not expect any reasonable image. After 5 images the other owl came and together they disappeared.
As I have reasons to believe that there is real chance that they will use my birdhouse for the next generation, I created a new page on my website 'Little Owl'. Of course I hope that the day will come that I an 'catch' them at day.
Jibt dir dit Leben mal een Buff, denn weene keene Träne. Lach Dir'n Ast und setz Dir druff und baumle mit de Beene.
