Recently I’ve visited two „families” in Białowieża Forest.
First one was a nesting site of Three-toed Woodpeckers. Both parents were feeding a youngster there. Because the birds had excavated the hole next to a quite popular forest road, a very noisy juvenile has even been awaking non-birders interest!
After that I checked Pygmy Owl nesting site close to Białowieża. A juvenile was staring at me from the hole while the mother was having a rest nearby and was encouraging the overgrown juvenile to jump off the nesthole.
This time of year is the best time to comfortably observe life of these late breeders and if you are planning to photograph either Pygmy Owl or Three-toed Woodpecker I would advise you to visit the Forest in early June.
