Reduced reproductive success, caused by energy constraints during breeding, is suspected to be one of the reasons for an ongoing decline in the Danish population of little owls (Athene noctua). To measure any food stress during the breeding period, working effort was defined as the minimum flight distance (the linear distance between consecutive telemetry fixes) during one-hour surveys of radio tagged individuals.
