June 8, 2014, Barn owl preys on one of the kestrel nestlings

Yesterday night a lone male adult barn owl entered into the kestrel nest box and after a long time, killed and ate one of the nestlings. The female kestrel tried to defend the nest but without success. In order to prevent the barn owl from re-entering the nest box and killing the remaining two nestlings, we added a small hole over the entrance that will allow the kestrels but prevent the barn owl from entering.

Let me sleep already!!!! The female no longer is incubating and will leave the  nestlings soon during they day. The female is also hunting at night and now needs her rest during the day. She will roost somewhere near the nest.
