What little owlets eat


This February 2015 video shows the adult little owl couple of the Beleef de Lente nestbox in the Netherlands.

Translated from STONE, the little owl specialist group in the Netherlands, from the blog of the webcam showing the Beleef de Lente little owl nestbox, 14 June 2015:

From since the owlets hatched, now 1.565 preys have been brought in. Cockchafers, it’s no surprise anymore now, are still by far at number one with 798 individuals. In 19 days time, that is an average of 42 per day. Mice and shrews are only supplied piecemeal: 22 mice and 7 shrews. Less than one mouse and a half per day.

This past week we have seen the number of earthworms increase from 7 on June 2 to 25 yesterday.
