Madis delivers a bundle of grass.

Piret stands and flaps her wings.

Madis leaves, Piret inspects the egg and settles down (then stands up again, then settles)

19:27
Piret leaves again, but a minute later, someone lands on the cam, then jumps to the nest.

Beautiful bird song during the late evening. Is it a nightingale?

Pictures on here are just beautiful. I loved the one yesterday with just the eggs, and the suns rays reaching from over the tree tops. Nature is wonderful. So many thanks for all the captures and the daily update. Great to hear that Madis is caring for Piret so well.

May 29

3:43
Piret was on the nest in earlier archive pictures, but this archive picture suggests a switch - perhaps Madis is rolling the eggs.

4:50
An hour later, Madis is still sitting on the eggs
http://pontu.eenet.ee/kalakotkas/2012-0 ... -04-50.jpg

4:51
Does Madis see Piret approach?
http://pontu.eenet.ee/kalakotkas/2012-0 ... -04-51.jpg

4:54 this looks like Piret, but Pontu archives did not record a switch
http://pontu.eenet.ee/kalakotkas/2012-0 ... -04-54.jpg

5:30
It is starting to rain. A few drops are seen on Piret's feathers.

Egg rolling and/or fluffing the nest

Madis arrives (what did he bring?). In the second picture (from Pontu archives), I think I see the tail of a fish.

Madis is eating a fish, Piret is not interested.
Does she not want to leave the eggs with Piret or has she already eaten?

18:50 One bird on the eggs, raindrops on the feathers
18:53 Yawns, looks around
19:02/19:03/19:04 Sounds like gunshots in a distance
19:08-19:10 Osprey works with the nest material within its reach
19:11 Very alert, a big bird flies past in the background. Osprey?
19:17 The eagle gets up twice and rolls the eggs. Ring is visible, it´s the male
19:18 The bird is very attentive all the time, now it “bites” in the nesting material vigorously. Again this sound – two gunshots?
19:31 A big bird flies by twice in the background – the female?
19:32 Noisy landing “upstairs”, chirping
19:33 The female jumps into the nest, the male leaves
19:39 Female gets up, rolls the eggs
19:40 Male returns with a clump of dry grass (video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1mCjDwtPwGo. Slow motion pictures: see video below). Female gets up, rolls the eggs, sits down; they “talk” a little
19:41 Male leaves the nest
19:50 Female still on the eggs when I closed the cam
