:wave:

Thanks for all updates, pictures and video during the day :2thumbsup:

Have today not been lucky to see much more than the most important – 3 chicks in nest :D

9.32

Life in nest seems to have changed very much over the last days.
Piret prefers more and more to be upstairs instead of in nest. So not much a parent is present in nest now. The chicks get a larger amount of fish at each feeding, so my impression is that the amount of feedings during the day also has decreased.
Really impressive so fast these chicks grows.
But having in mind that they have to be full grown for migration just in few months it´s no wonder although quite not to understand

two weeks ago 21.6.

one week ago

21.13 I was lucky to see Piret in nest for about a minut - she is still upstairs

22:34 Madis arrives ..... then Piret jumps down from the cam. She inspects his feet to see if he brought anything. Madis soon flies off, and Piret drags a huge fish from the nest bowl. (I think it was already there and Madis did not bring anything this time :puzzled: )

EDIT: Well, maybe he did bring it ... I am not sure- the pictures are blurry because the light is fading. At any rate, there is a big fish being fed to the chicks - good thing their crops are very elastic.

No Nancy it was very much alive, almost escaped from Piret's talon.

July 6

Pontu archives reveal that up until 4:17, the chicks were alone on the nest.


4:17 Madis arrived, and Piret came down from the cam support. (from Pontu)
Image

4:24 Piret feeds the chicks.
Image

4:26 Did Madis bring two fish? This one has more to it (a head) than the one that Piret was feeding just now.
Image

4:30 Feeding going on (Uno is eating now, the others look full)
4:39 #2 (s/he needs a nice name) is being fed now.
Image


4:46 Now #2 is full and Uno goes back for more.
4:48 Uno is full. Nori has been asleep for some time now.
4:54 Piret finishes eating and goes up to the cam support.

5:29 Madis arrives with a new fish. What kind is this? I'm sure it is not the same carp species!

Image

Image


Madis took the head off the fish while the chicks watched. Here, you can see it looks lighter underneath than on top.
Image





Piret comes down and pulls up the rest of an older one
Madis feeds a bite to Nori
Piret leaves the nest.

5:32 All 3 poop. Madis feeds a bit.

5:33 Piret returns with a tree
Image


Madis climbs on a branch and feeds #2 and of course Nori.
5:36 Piret fleaps up to the cam support.

5:37 Madis is only pretend feeding - teeny tiny bites, and then no bite at all. The chicks turn away so Madis eats big bites himself. Then he offers a big long stringy thing to Nori, who wisely does not take it eeeewwww.... (Madis eats it).

5:39 #3 plays with a pine cone. Uno is out cold, Nori of course is being fed.
Image

5:45 Even Nori is full and starts to churble and bounce (how can he even bounce with all that food?)
5:46-5:49 Madis is eating his fish, sometimes offering bites, but no one wants any more fish.

5:48 Piret flies off but returns within half a minute with some branches. She begins to eat one of the half-fish on the nest.
5:51 The chicks cannot resist - Uno and #2 take bites from both Piret and Madis. (see Priscilla's video!)
Image


5:53 Madis flies away (I did not see if he took the last part of his fish)
6:08 Piret flies away.
6:12 Piret returns to the cam support.

6:42 Piret is on the cam support, Madis pays a brief visit.
