Ame, I read somewhere that eagles, storks start their reproduction phase by mingling body fluids when the cloaca come into contact, so not much time is needed.

yes, and neither is a penis required. except for water birds, at least some of them, which mate afloat. i guess that is a more tricky process so it requires a firmer 'docking', a more stable grip. :nod:

at 16.40 there was a thirD osprey, too, trying to invaDe the nest, but i was too slow to capture a picture. two birDs were in the nest anD the claws of the thirD one were in the upper rim of the picture.
then for a while the two were looking up anD arounD, so i guess that the thirD one was circling arounD.
