Question for all of you: Is it the same Sulev who was in the old nest...?
I think that if we can see his tail feathers then we can say exactly.
Thanks so much for more news about Linda and Sulev - it´s a really pleasure to know they are fine and doing well in their new tree
Concerning Sulev - it´s hard to say if it´s the same Sulev as earlier from these photos - although nice
Of course it would help if we could see his tail from above - but then nevertheless not at this time of the year.
According to my experiences - 7 years watching the same eaglepair in "my" landscape, I have seen changes because of moulting of the feathers with tailspots in this time of the year.
The female here have large, very visible (also on distance) tailspots. And every year in the beginning of May she begins to moult these feathers which gives another appearence. She also looses these feathers in the very same way every year. First late Summer or beginning of Autumn she again is complete, then these spots is a way to know for sure that she is her unless one knows her very well.
This had happened every single year I have known her. So I now believe that to identifie a WTE by tailspots only is just possible during Autumn/Winthertime.edit: I made a mistake in the fourth last line, sorry. Of course the right is ..........that these spots is not a way to know for sure...........
