I saw the GE on the nest today - just for 5 minutes. Why would she visit the nest if she had another nest elsewhere?

Why does she go elsewhere when she has a nest here? :innocent:

Somewhere it said there might be another alternative nest.

I think otherwise they would do breeding care somewhere else and not come back to this nest.

Or am I wrong? :unsure:
Yeah, if they don't find food enough this year they just skip it and try next year, usual behavior, they don't breed every year.
Don't know how it is with eagle food in Estonia this year :puzzled:

May I put the link? :puzzled:

Up to 12 (!) Nests attach and use them

 they change.

You never know where they will breed this year. Or not. :unsure:

"Confusing" is an understatement, GT translates it to this:
Urmas Sellis:
"It's quite complicated to track the capercaillie because they do not slaughter each year. In the last couple of years, gulls have been successfully nesting in Soomaa. And then the birds probably decided to skip the nest. "
The nesting sites of the county eagles remain on the ramparts, and the nest will be built on a higher tree of a rhubarb. There are about sixty rocky pairs in Estonia nesting.

But anyway, it's a pity they won't breed, I was looking forward to a successful season.

Thanks Summi, for the news :thumbs:

In Portugal, both Golden eagles and Iberian imperial eagles have 2 or 3 nests. And they change from time to time. Maybe to have the nests more clean?
But it can also happen that they decide not to bread.

Hello sova! :wave: I just saw it and thought .... ups .... :whistling:
A very interesting perspective.

Unfortunately, some of my favorite cameras have been off for a long time. It has always been the most durable. Someone will judge her again. :thumbs:

Golden Eagle cam was turned down during a stormy day. Probably nobody noticed exactly, when it happened. Most probably there was not eagle who hit a cam, but some falling branch or something like that.
In coming days we remove nest cameras, except White-tailed Eagle cam. The WtE cam will be repaired, but we hope to keep it working over winter. No more autonomous power stations to produce energy during dark time as only one. Changing of batteries is too much time and fuel consuming and not much to see actually trough other cameras.
More reasonable is to make a brake and in spring to install these again.
