Congratulations Koit and Eha! Now we could sing in chorus one of the most popular songs of Estonians by name KOIT - to honour the Estonian Lesser Spotted Eagles' first egg: 'Koit'! I thought that Koit is a suitable name for an eagle. The word means 'dawn'! A new dawn to the birth of an Eagle, bird of freedom, has begun with the first egg..Lili wrote:Her mate brought a prey

the second verse:
On koit, kuninglik loit,
(It's dawn, a majestic blaze)
valguse võit äratab maa.
(Victory of the light awakes the land)
Prii on taevapiir, esimene kiir
(Free is the horizon, and the first ray)
langemas on maale.
(Will soon touch the land)
Please, if only we could forget the artificial 'dirty' as if meaning that begins with the letter c, it is wholly an invented, a biased meaning! Sorryy..The c-word has nothing to do with dawn., pliiizzz.. But if somebody can't use that name, so.. nothing to say.. I don't want to begin a new 'thing'-discussion, but if I don't remember wrong, the name Koit was proposed by U!
