a great tit came to greet Pruuni while she was doing homework. :D
Halli came to nest at 8.36 to see what Pruuni had done so far... both were quietly looking around... then Pruuni took off and Halli followed her at 8.38.

at 8.44 Pruuni brought a stick. this time she took more time in the nest, looking around, arrenging stuff etc.




she left at 8.48. after the nest has been empty. the forest is rather quiet. of course there are birds singing but they aren't madly loud. it's cloudy and there's only little wind. calm before strom?

Image

and Pruuni (?) landed....
Image

...called but left again immediately with a lot of meowing. i think Halli was there, too. someone landed outside the picture in the lower right corner: a branch was swaying and Pruuni looked there. both meouwed a lot and loud. this may have been a coutship flight. :rolleyes:

11.34 Pruuni came to the nest (with something? i didn't see..)

this time it's staying. it climbed to the back branch.


... then changed to the right branch...


and took off at 11.41.


EDIT at 12.02: it's been quiet since this visit, i.e. no-one in the nest. birds are singing in the forest of course. :rolleyes:
- sun has peeked a few times. :peek:

i had the camera closed from about 12.26 to 1 pm.
at 13.03 someone meowed in the tree above the camera and took off, and flew to the back then.


at 13.07 meowing began to approach from the forest again... then Pruuni landed on the nest calling loudly. she held her wings a bit spread out on the sides...
Image

.... and called looking up..
Image

...but no-one followed her so she took off at 13.08. then two meouwing voices flew away...


this was an almost complete replica of the visit at 11.33, except that the sun was shining. :D a courtship flight? maybe they are now getting into business... :whistling:

at 14.54 Pruuni flew in, and was soon followed by Halli (or the other way round).
Image

Image

i don't think that either of them brought anything. they seemed to come from different directions (but they Halli must have seem that Pruuni was flying to the nest and so he followed her).


Pruuni made some arrangements... then Halli left at 14.55.

Image

Edit (at 17.06): it's been quiet since the last visit. only some meouwing at 16.04 and 16.41, but nobody came...
