Nancy, I thought, the blackish 1 is number 1 and the one with the more brownish head (especially at the backside of the head) is number 2.
Please, don't tell me I am already confusing them :mrgreen:



:shock: I have them the other way around~ (one of us in confused :innocent: )

When we see them all 3 at once it will become clear, no doubt. I think you are right :nod:

I think in this picture we see C 1, C 3 and C 2 (from left to right).

Maertha, thanks, that is a clear picture of the 3 together, and as I already wrote to Nancy, the brown color must mean 1 step ahead of the blackish color. I'll copy and safe it right away.

Maertha, I agree with 1-3-2 in your picture ~ thanks for posting that.

21:08 Madis landed on the nest with a chunk of fish in his right foot. He ate several bites.
Image


21:11 Once or twice , it seemed like he was offering a bite to Piret (but she did not take it)
Image


21:16 Madis flew away

But I had the 2 confused all day, so also when I told about the 1st fight. So, sorry Macko50 :blush:

Edit: seeing them all 3 together it is obvious, the left one is also much bigger already.

You´re welcome, jopie & Nancy. :wave:

I just came across the beautiful website of Mark B Bartosik, “Life on the Osprey time”. Don´t know if it has been already posted in the forum? http://www.pbase.com/mbb/life_on_the_osprey_time

And would that be the youngest, peeping with each breath?
The same sound I heard in the morning.

Sounds like a squeaky toy. I don't remember hearing that sound before.

Hello Reeny, I looked it up in my dictionary; the word I have to use is "wheezy breath". I heard it earlier in the day too.

Good night Reenie and everybody else :wave:

As yet I didn´t saw him manage a “real” feeding, whether Pirit was there or not. Whenever I watched them he offered the chicks at the most some morsels – so I´m not sure if he is that eager to feed them. He has many opportunities to try it or simply to do it, but it appears to me that he prefers to enjoy a meal in the nest or to “steal” the fish which he has brought before. Of course others may have noticed more successful feedings.



Maertha, I have posted pictures of Madis really giving the chicks a whole feeding. Don't know the exact date right now. Piret stepped in at last to feed the youngest but the older 2 were fed by Madis.


That wasn´t exactly what I meant, but thank you for the interesting information, jopie. So much food in the nest… Heavens, It´s amazing how fast the chicks grow now. :loveshower:

Thanks to all for the many reports today! :2thumbsup:


Hi Maertha :hi:
You are right, despite Madis more times is seen feeding his chicks he doesn´t seem enthusiastic about feeding. As you mention he doesn´t grab any given chance to feed.
Perhaps what is seen of feeding just is to show that he´s able to if necessary – if something happens to Piret that prevent her from doing this work? But the main impression is that feeding is the work Piret has to take care of, as his is to provide fish for his family. Clearly division of tasks between male and female.

Thank you all once again for all the pics and posts. Cant believe how quickly the chicks are growing by the day. Seems damp on the nest at the moment.
Was unable to open cam earlier so am very gratefull for the updates.
Hope there wont be too much sibling rivalry, but its a tough world for wild creatures and they have to be able to defend themselves, only the strongest survive.

Maertha That link is marvellous. Once you look at all the photos go to Galleries and see more photos of many,lots of birds. :thumbs: Its enormous. :headroll:
Photos by Mark B. Bartosic.

You are all posting pics and posts re; cam but I still have no cam. :help:
Edit; Yes I do..cam came on now. :thumbs:


Mark Bartosic´s gallery is phantastic, isn´t it? Obviously an osprey fan :D

The same here, macdoum, no connection. When I opened the cam at 19:50 it worked , but 20:01 the picture disappeared again. But I checked Pontu:

20:25 Madis brought a pretty good fish

Feeding

Ninja chick wants some food

http://pontu.eenet.ee/kalakotkas/2012-0 ... -20-43.jpg
21:08 Madis has landed. He brought a fish or he found one in the nest. Maybe he´s eating – difficult to say

Hi b.h-p! Or maybe a sort of “alibi behaviour”? (I don´t plunder our fish stocks, darling, I´m just feeding the chicks… :whistling:). Couldn´t this be useful to prevent aggression? Yes, the distribution of tasks is clear, even though also this kind of behaviour seems to be flexible. Today I read a text written by the already mentioned Mark Bartosik, he wrote about a pair which he observed: ”this particular Osprey pair had no problems during last 5 years fledging even 3 chicks during two different years. Female almost never hunted during nesting seasons in past years -- this year she was providing at least half, if not more fish than male, and the pair was only able to raise one chick that was often left alone for many hours as both parents were trying to catch fish at that time.”

It´s so interesting to watch and to learn. :headroll:

Piret has been brooding ever since I opened the cam (and also checked Pontu ). Look at the little foot and wing sticking out ...

Poor Piret is covering her babies up, for it is pouring with rain. She doesn´t look too happy with it. :rolleyes:
