Activity in the Loft

Our 3 Chicks are now spending most of their time out of the Nest Box. It is believed that they now go outside and may have started to hunt for themselves.

It’s now very hard distinguishing which is the eldest and youngest. Sadly it won’t be long before they’ll be off on their own and won’t return. So we’ll have to wait for a new couple of breeding barn owls.

CHANGE OF CAMERA

Now that the three owlets are spending most of their time outside the nest box we have changed our live stream over to our other camera which gives a view of the birds in the loft and you can see the nest box in the corner.

It is interesting to watch them practicing their hunting skills as they swoop on imaginary prey in the loft.

GETTING BIG

The three owlets have now, pretty much, lost their down feathers and look like adults, which means the nest box is quite crowded when everyone is home.

They now spend most of their time in the loft outside the box, as they increase their flying lessons, but return to the nest box to feed.

As they become more proficient at flying they will venture further and look for a home of their own and we will have an empty nest until, hopefully, the adults return.
