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 .....
