This video from Britain is called BBC – Natural World – Return Of The Eagle Owl.

This year, Dutch eagle owls nested at a different spot than in earlier years. So, the webcam at the usual spot did not register much.

However, now there is a new webcam, closer to the new nest site. It is here.

Baby owls born on American webcams


This video from North America is called Barred Owl nest and youngsters fledging.

From the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in the USA:

Our Owls Are a Hoot!

With the launch of two new owl cams—the Barn Owl cam in Texas and the Wild Birds Unlimited Barred Owl cam in Indiana—the excitement is building. Early in the morning on April 8, the first of three Barred Owl eggs hatched revealing a downy owlet (watch the highlight). A second owlet hatched out on April 9, and the third appears to have hatched today. The Barn Owls‘ first egg appeared the same day the Barred Owls began hatching, and today they added a second! They’re expected to continue to add to their clutch over the next week.

Translated from ARK conservationists in the Netherlands:

Tuesday, March 11, 2014

In Limburg this year a record number of eagle owls has been found. During an investigation by ARK Nature Development already fourteen territories of these spectacular owls have been discovered. In 1997, the eagle owl nested for the first time in a limestone quarry near Maastricht. The numbers are growing and the eagle owls are also expanding into woods and sand quarries scattered throughout the province of Limburg.

This is a video about the northern hawk-owl in Zwolle, the Netherlands, on 28 January 2014.

The northern hawk-owl, present in Zwolle since November 2013, is still there. Today, it sat on the viaduct near the railway.

Talking about Zwolle city: today, at the Sochi Winter Olympics, two twin brothers from Zwolle won medals. Michel Mulder became Olympic champion in 500 meter speed skating. His brother Ronald Mulder won the bronze medal. Jan Smeekens, also from the Netherlands, was in second place, just one hundredth of a second behind Michel Mulder.

This is a video about Michel Mulder from December last year, when he skated a 500 meter world record for lowland speed skating tracks.
