There is already breeding activity!

Note:

On April 21 the stream through Pontu server was taken off! The known addresses for all devices no longer work - if you want to follow, there is a Youtube link. There are no more Pontu pictures and videos in the known archives!

Barking and some music, but the hawk doesn't pay any attention on those sounds.

It seems that mom could not call the male with food long time and so she left the nest... the male is too young, we think... unfortunately. :unsure: But - better now as later... :nod:

What a pity, it would have been interesting to watch this nest, especially as it was in a urban vicinity - how the birds deal with it .....
