In mid-October new owl nest boxes were fixed for Ural Owls and Co. Thanks to all supporters of our owls, companies in the region and from further away, whose interest and support are an invaluable contribution for our owls. Thanks to Stefan Knöpfer (www.ornithoclimbing.at) who fixed the new owl nest boxes in the Wilderness Area region with his professional tree climbing skills. Thanks to all assistants like Maria von Rochow and Christoph Kainz for their dedicated commitment and hands-on support for the team of the Wilderness Area. Thanks to all land owners, the Austrian Federal Forestry Office and the private land owners, for their interest and their support with fixing owl nest boxes. Thanks to all colleagues of our team for their dedicated commitment. The owls are calling already every night during autumn display. Due to the beech mast an increase of the small mammal populations and good breeding success of the owls are expected. We are looking forward to the next breeding season and nest box controls next spring!
