Something happened with female, the male was in the nest morning, he brought branchs etc,
later he brought the prey.
This is out of question (that the male didn't bring enough food or female didn't accept the male)
It was happy family-life this morning and earlier!

EDIT: but there was poor food bringing 13-14 May though

no chicks this year in this nest, sad!
I think there are still 2 eggs
I agree with you....really- that doesn't matter now ( is there one or two....the problem is the parents are gone)

Adult eagle flew to the nest about 7:24, turned eggs and begun incubating. I don't know if that is male or female - had a look too rarely before.

But fortunately eggs seem to be not broken, only these could be not alive anymore...

Woodpecker passed close by, but has no chance for look at eggs, also blue tit came for small feathers, but was unsuccessful this time.

8:08 adult eagle found something to eat, stood up, took care of its feathering - seems not to be interested of incubating - and 8:11 took off...

Even if the eagles visit the nest a few hours a day, it means they stopped incubating.
Why not take those eggs, check if they are still alive and place them in incubator before instead of harmless tits and woodpeckers ravens or buzzards appear here.

Everything looks better now! The eagle is sleeping. It just corrected the position of the body some few times, stepped a bit on the cavity, rolled eggs and at last fell asleep :sleeping:

at 18:50 :D :thumbs:

Seems like it is male who is missing and she is going to search food at day time... :puzzled:

Let's hope the male will return! I guess it might be very difficult to take care of chicks all alone.. So, the problem is not solved yet! :puzzled:

We have to wait to see the other eagle.. :unsure:

Rendandeli thank you for all pics!
20.15 she is still on eggs :thumbs: and it looks this nest female (almost white brows and darker head) :nod:

(The eagle who was incubating till 16:17 doesn't look to me this nest female, but I'm not sure is it male or somebody stranger)

Perhaps here is still hope :bow:
I wonder does the bird feel if the eggs aren't alive :unsure:
