I am not sure what kind of this bird was. A Mistle thrush? It landed in the lower left corner of the screen, only partial visible, and quickly flew up again. It made some soft calls unknown to me.

No Capercaillies again this morning?

Good Morning :wave:

Time flies like in flight... You would have to have a second camera in the breeding area ... I'm already starting to dream, Urmas :blush:

Aren't there enough webcams already? Camera's and accompanying equipment are very expensive and it will cost already a lot of money to make this cam reliable.
A capercallie nest is difficult to find. Then you have to make it visible, place a camera at it etc. The breeding season is over before you start viewing.

I know, I know... sorry , the hens all have their own area, right Hagnat? But maybe there is also an own research project about it?

I have been operating today from 4am to 6:30.
Unfortunately no Cc on cam. Just some flying in the air.
So I had time to test some technical settings of the camera.

It doesn't surprise me at all. Added as number 54 to the list.

Btw. Yesterday I heard on the Põgari-Sassi cam a Northern wheatear including several times a clear mimic of Rosefinch it its song.

so sweet :D

Although it can adapt to a number of different habitats such as bogs and deciduous forests or semi-open landscapes and mixed forests, it has become very rare in Germany: From 600 to 950 areas go out the ornithologists, two copies NABU fellows sighted at the hour of garden birds 2017. It feeds on seeds and buds, and its range extends from Central Europe via Turkey, Iran and beyond the Himalayas to Kamchatka.

Rosefinch can be heard on many Estonian and Latvian webcams.
