This eagle owl video is called Doñana, Spain: last chick leaves the nest.

According to Gejo Wassink of the Dutch Eagle Owl Group, at the eagle owl nest monitored by webcam in the eastern Netherlands, so far 23 prey animals have been brought in.

These were 10 mice, 4 smallish birds (thrushes?), 2 wood pigeons, 4 rabbits, a jay, a toad or frog and a rat.

The toad or frog was the first amphibian ever recorded as eagle owl food in the Netherlands.
