Lesser spotted eagle Kai was „fearless“ when meeting the ringers
 
Lesser spotted eagle nest camera 2013
 
This was the sixth year in a row when we were able to observe the daily lives of lesser spotted eagles Eha and Koit via web camera. Their nest is located in the heart of Estonia, in northern Jõgevamaa, on the edge of...

Wednesday morning`s last close-up image of this year`s young lesser spotted eagle.
 
So, Kai is looking forward to flight school and „life school“ – let there be wind beneath his wings. Some adaptation, hunting skills and soon the first „world trip“ to wintering areas is about to begin.

From early morning onwards on Monday young lesser spotted eagle Kai was out of camera range, climbing the nest tree branches. On arrival of male Koit he quickly returns to the nest and feels himself to be the rightful receiver of the prey. The difference in size between the adult and the juvenile is already in favour of the juvenile, but Kai’s feathers are fluffier which makes him bigger.
 
There are perhaps only a few days left before leaving the nest...

Male bird Koit is in the picture. Koit is smaller than the female and has browner plumage
 
There was a small, but important anniversary in lesser-spotted eagles`nest – surviving eaglet turned one month old. There have been all kinds of events in the eagles`nest since spring: a jay disturbed female bird Eha while she was laying eggs and incubating. More drama was added for the viewers when the eaglet who hatched later died, but that`s the way of life for this species. Forum viewers call the...

On Sunday night the family of lesser spotted eagle pair Eha and Koit became smaller  by the younger chick; now the parents have one less mouth to feed.
 
Those who are not quite updated about the events can read the story of Cain and Abel published earlier:

Eagles of the Aquila genus have cainism bred in their genes, and that is plausibly why the adults will not prevent what happens. Over the years the view in the LSE nest camera has always been the same – at feeding the faster or stronger gets the mouthful, and the power struggle between the chicks is an everyday phenomenon from hatching onwards, until...
 
In nature cainism has occurred for millions of years, having proven to be useful in preserving the species through the strongest...

In the nest of lesser spotted eagles Eha and Koit a chick was hatched yesterday from the second egg laid.
 
As written before, spotted eagles start incubating from the laying of the first egg. The chick that was hatched first thus will already be one week old on Tuesday, an age difference of almost five days. Both hatched chicks in a nest only rarely fledge, but it does happen occasionally.

Fascinating to watch how the LSE female assists the chick that hatched on its own.
 
Lesser spotted eagles are our most numerous eagle species, the same is true of the European eagle population. In Estonia more than five hundred pairs breed and the number is not decreasing, although in most cases only one chick fledges from a nest.
 
The breeding success of spotted eagles is determined by a three-year cycle, which follows changes...
