Starling        Kuldnokk        Sturnus vulgaris 

 

 

Before noon the last young starling left the nest box, and none of the six chicks returned in the evening to spend the night there.

Good Luck To You, Starlings-to-be!

We thank our project  partners, the LK forum members, who recorded the events in the nest and of course all interested viewers.

Although starlings are well-known birds fundamental studies of them have not been made in Europe.

Black stork       Must-toonekurg         Ciconia nigra

Unbelievable how large fish the black storks manage to catch, in addition to gobble down.

Sucn a treat was of course too much for the only a week and half old stork chicks and went back into the craw of  female Kati

At eight o’clock the smallest starling chick remained in the nest box

Now this one too sits in the nest-box opening, considering the world – earlier the bigger ones simply did not allow it the space. The climbing seems inexperienced but training goes on.

A little before nine o’clock there were several visits to the opening.

By and by fewer starling chicks are left in the nest box

In the morning two starling chicks left the nest box

... but in the afternoon one roving chick appeared again back in the nest box -  probably it held the familiar environment for safer but  it spent the evening as a stopper in the nest opening when the two smallest ones on the bottom of the nest box waited for feeding by the parents.

So three starling chicks stay to spend the night

Some of the starling chicks have left the nest

Veebikaamera pildid Felis silvestris ja Seira LK foorumist  Kuldnokk       Sturnus vulgaris     Kell 6.42 olid veel kõik kuus kuldnokapoega tihedalt pesakastis.

At  6.42 all six starling chicks were tightly together in the nest box.

Tunni möödudes oli esimene poeg pesast lahkunud ja peatselt ka järgmine…

An hour later the first chick had left the nest and soon afterwards also a second one.

A little later two starling chicks went briefly out of the nest but it seems that four starlings-to-be stay to spend the night in the nest box together.
