The camera was installed when the chick hatched. Since then the male has not been seen at the nest :rant:

Sorry, I did not know the background of that cam if shared the link!
Hopefully there is only a syndrome of beginners rush! And a guy behind that will learn of forum reaction. But not seeing the situation in nest does not mean that everything is OK...

A beautiful falcon explored the nest today for full 5 minutes. Was this a Eurasian hobby (Falco subbuteo)?, although I know them more brownish in color.

Nice :thumbs:
Guess they could make it with 30 days incubation and 5-6 weeks for the chicks to fly.
But think I heard an eagle calling in the background? they might not tolerate them :unsure:
