This video is called Little Owl, Athene noctua.

Translated from the Beleef de Lente site of BirdLife in the Netherlands:

Little owl most watched bird on the Spring Experience nest webcams

June 27, 2012 | 10:17

The little owl is by far the most watched bird in the last month of the Spring Experience. In the past month, this little bird generated over a million page views. This means that the little owl has by now overtaken the peregrine falcon as the best watched bird of the Spring Experience. In mid-season the peregrine was still on top.

The Top 10 of most watched birds this season is as follows (the numbers will still grow slightly until July 1):

1. Little owl 4,180,090
2. Peregrine falcon 3,739,050
3. White stork 3,133,324
4. Eagle owl 2,472,433
5. Great tit 1,967,423
6. Kingfisher 1,737,817 [kingfisher photo here]
7. Blackbird 1,518,995
8. Spoonbill 1,502,234
9. Barn swallow 1,379,781
10. Swift 1,357,076
11. Montagu’s harrier webcam often not connected

  4. Nico,
    Op onze camping in het binnenland van de Algarve horen we regelmatig de
    roep van de steenuil. Gisteren zag ik hem eindelijk door de verrekijker
    en hebben we snel de telescoop gepakt. We zagen een paartje. Ze zaten
    met hun koppen tegen elkaar te kroelen, een prachtig gezicht. Toen het
    later ging regenen zagen we een van de steenuilen zijn vleugels
    spreiden om te badderen. Het lukte om met mijn compactcamera voor de
    telescoop deze foto’s te maken. Ze zijn natuurlijk niet van geweldige
    kwaliteit, maar toch leuk genoeg om te laten zien vond ik.
    Vriendelijke groet,
    Martha
