He turned the eggs and sat on them about 10 minutes

He took off at 14.13
The prey (seems like a vole) "is waiting" for female

S/he returned, but the adult birds didn´t incubate 7.5 hours. It makes me worried, I would like to know others opinions about it

18.00 S/he is sitting on eggs

Ps I dont know who it was, but I guess it wasn't "this nest female" at all
Latvian female eagle has darker head and brighter brows (like Estonian male eagle)ˇ
Perhaps it was a male again

Oh NO!
This is an unhappy situation.

Did the magpie eat one of the eggs? If the nest is abandoned, then it is fair game for any hungry predator.
how awful.

I haven't seen nobody eating the egg. (its not magpie, I think it was a woodpecker)
The problem is that the female eagle left this morning and she didn't return. But why? Something happened with her, something disturbed... no :bow:

But that the fact_ This is an unhappy situation.

Yesterday she also left the nest for more than 2 hours. I think nothing happened with her, she just abandoned the nest.

Just so...Do you think she abandoned without reason, just the mood...I doubt :puzzled:

If she didn't accept the male? Sometimes it happens that the male does not bring enought food for example, and the female abandones the nest. She has to be sure that everything goes just right, - Or if something bad happened to the male (!) In that case the female does not trust in the male anymore that he will be healthy and strong enough for all the time needed to breed the chicks, - if wounded the male would possible die later. (I have once written this same. - The example of birds abandoning their pair was in some book were it was told about the Blue tit female's bahavior in case the male has been attacked, and only propably wounded. The Blue tit female abandones the male and begins to search a new candidate for father to her chicks (if she already has chicks).

But if this may happen to eagles too, I do not know at all.

Looking the nest and the lonely egg makes one sad..

There may be 2 eggs but one thing is clear: if nobody incubates them, the chicks won't hutch. Is it possible to take the eggs away and put in incubator? :unsure:
