Goshawk nest in Poland

Post by BigDee » April 7th, 2018, 3:31 pm

The nest ist near Białystok (northeast of Poland).

The camera operates from 4 a.m till 11 p.m (Central European Time).

Info from the web site about the events so far:
14.02 - The nest has been found (it's in construction). Close to the new nest is also the old nest. The goshawks can be heard in tree crowns.
12.03 – The nest is noticeably larger. On the top there are fresh pine twigs, one of the birds calls in the forest.
26.03 - Camera installation. The birds immediately accept the installed equipment.
30.03 - Fourth egg appears, so there is full clutch.

Thank you, BigDee, for this goshawk webcam. It's a very clear image, and the birds are clear to see. They have such obvious striped or barred markings that makes it easier to identify them as goshawks.

As we have seen goshawk predation on an Estonian nest camera, it will be interesting to learn more about them here. Actually, I am going to hope for a day with rather less strong sunlight. The contrast between light and dark makes viewing a little less easy.
