Male: Madis

Both are old Estonian names...
I think Piret & Madis are good names. :2thumbsup: Mutikluti thank you. :wave:
In all the confusion of seeing several ospreys I forgot all about their names. :rolleyes:

Male is doing just fine: 3rd time since the egg was laid, he is here with fish, SHE has to grab it. But doesn't so far.

Hi Macdoum, I really could not say :blush: I did miss if he pushed through, and the differences are difficult to see ( I am working on it :whistling: )

Macdoum, I think I have found a major difference: it is in the tail. Male's tail has rounded ends and female's tail has "square" ends. So, this would be Madis then? (another edit: I am still not sure who this is)

Edit: And the tail of the female seems much longer then of the male, and brown breastfeathers start lower with the male, more white feathers there. (meantime I cling for the ring to tell who is who :unsure: )

19:18 Madis arrived on the nest. I didn't see any fish.
He is very curious,wants to take over. Piret isn't moving :mrgreen: so he is shifting sticks around the nest... getting in the way really. :nod:
19:26 Madis is still on the nest,perched on the right side. :rolleyes:
Madis,go and get some nice soft nest materials,like moss or grass.!! You need to cushion the egg.

Jopie Madis has a ring on right leg.

And I am trying to find physical differences, so when we don't see his leg, we know anyway who is who.

20.01
At last Madis saw this egg from the closer distance... :D But he couldn't be with an egg long time, Piret decided that she can not fly away and sat on the egg again.

:wave: Hi, everyone! I feel much better now than the past few days, so I will post a little today. I have been looking at the osprey nest. I did read about all the competetion for nesting rights in the past week or so. It seems finally the selection of mate has been made! I am not familiar with these birds yet, but I see they made a beautiful egg, such pretty colors. I hope to understand in the next few days which is the male & which is the female. If I am right, you say the male has a ring on his right leg? Do these birds mate for years or a lifetime, like other eagles?
