Eurasian eagle-owls in the Netherlands


This is a Eurasian eagle-owl video.

In 1997, after a long absence, immigrating from Germany, Eurasian eagle-owls started nesting in the Netherlands. In 2014, there were over twenty breeding couples.

This week, they were also seen in urban areas: in Utrecht, Rotterdam, Poortugaal and Purmerend. It is not certain whether these were wild or feral birds.
