i guess the positive side of this is that it's not snowing more.

Last two nights the cam went off around sunset, did not get the exact time, but it had become dark by the time. Today it is still not off, it is that black and white picture, one can make out the snow in the nest, and there is the sound of the wind.

:headroll: Interesting sounds-- I think this is the calling of Common Snipes on the forest floor under the old white-tailed eagle nest. The moonlight is bright, so I can make out some outline of the tree limbs holding the nest.

you right Kitty, it's a common snipe who is making that sound but it's not a call. the sound comes from the outermost tailfeathers of the bird. it flies in circles above its territory and makes deep dives and then rises up again, like in a wavy motion. while it is diving it streches out the tail feathers and they make the baaing sound when they vibrate in the airflow. here's a picture (by Pasi Parkkinen) which shows the feathers in action.

That must have been that deep, booming sound I heard. I wondered what it was. Thank you, Ame, for the information & great picture of the snipe. I was surprised to think of them flying like that at night, but I guess the moonlight was very bright the other night & they could see. :D

haa! i missed the bittern! thank you Fleur for pointing that out! :thumbs:

i think the snipe should be a diunal bird but maybe it had just arrived and was eager to claim the rights to this territory and began the baaing-flight right away. :D

i recorded a short clip from here because now the common snipe was calling there. it wasn'rt very near but i hope it can be heard on the video. its call goes tik-kot-tik-kot-tik-kot-... while calling like this the bird stands on some pole where he has a view over the surrounding swamp or shore or meadow. -btw: it's raining here as well (but it's water).

This was the last picture I took today (18:10). When I came back at 18:52 the cam was off (“to many retries, giving up”).

good morning!
i think there was a robin, too, in the end (together with the caws of a hooded crow). that's a new arrival.
