Dear Uhufriends

After phases with sufficient food supply, it was quite short in the past week. Although each owlets got something to eat every night (exceptions was the night 4th to 5th May.). The amounts of food left a lot to be desired. As a yardstick for estimating when the chicks might seriously endanger their lives, we have seen two events in the past: 1. Four-week-old owlet have survived five days and nights without food, but were well nourished before. 2. An approximately 14-day chick starved after two days and nights without food.

As a conclusion from these observations, I try to grab the Uhus under the wings, if it is really scarce in my estimation. Just like this Sunday (May 5th). I fear a nearly lethal situation for chick 2, if it would get nothing in the coming night. Therefore, I borrowed a microwave from the neighbor today, quickly thawed two muskrats and in the afternoon drove to the rock on the Ahr. Muskrat 1 I put on the rocky ridge, which also serves the Uhus as booty transfer point. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw Lotte sitting in the rock face, but did not look directly at her. With Muskrat 2, I then headed for Uhunest. When wet, the unsecured climbing up is such a thing, so I just wanted to climb below the nest and bridge the last eight meters in altitude by Bisamwurf. The first attempt failed, the muskrat soon followed gravity, but I could guess where it landed. So I went back down and hid the precious food to try again. This time I ventured for the throw two meters higher and tried again. The muskrat remained only briefly in the nest area, rolled and crashed down the rock wall. Untraceable.

Back at home, the view of the screen shows only a black square. The cam does not show a live image. Reason unknown. After the call with Christian Giese is at least clear that technically everything is ok locally. The problem lies with the server, an employee of Pixtura drives (today on Sunday!) To the enterprise to remedy the disturbance. Then the cam is running again. Finally, I can see how the Uhus react to my help attempts. Lotte sits back with the boys and her gaze clearly has that certain something of booty. She looks to the ridge and looks at "my" rat. Hopefully she will soon dare to finally feed the constantly begging chick 2. But she still hesitates, does not dare to go there at brightness, where just this monster still dealt with the muskrat.

Finally, half an hour later, Lotte brings the muskrat into the nest, and the udders are so thrilled that with excitement they are barely able to take specific chunks from their mother's beak. Now I am satisfied with my action. Although my body had been looking forward to a break after six days in a row, but who says A like a webcam, B must always be "ready in an emergency".

During this week, our owlets will be 28 days old.
Therefore, their ring comes closer. I'm planning on Saturday, 11th of May at 18:00.
