Hi Polly and Emiliano,

thank you both for your replies!

So I noted June, 28th, as the begin of their branchling status on the first page now. A link to the corresponding post is also set, everyone who wants a review can find it easily that way.

Thank you both for all your reports and endurance here :thumbs:

Addendum to July 11th.

I will not list everything now, but one thing ...
18:59 H44 sneaks through the side entrance with food.
Outside his juveniles are begging. Shortly afterwards it leaves the nest with the food into the area.
19:01 He returns and while there is still nagging outside, he keeps broadcasting 'Gjak'. Quiet and gentle ...

Image

Image

Well, just a guess ... he's trying to lure the hawklets into the nest? To convey that there is food here?
19:04 The first outlier appears. I suspect H94. One of the juveniles who does not have a V in its tail feathers.

July 13th

The nest stayed empty overnight but already ...
04:40 the first begging calls can be heard. It just seemed like a juvenile to me.

05:34 A juvenile begs in the area, one in the nest tree.
05:34 ... and there is the first breakfast guest - and looks at empty plates. :laugh:

Image

Image

Climb the side branch, up and up.
05:39 Leave the branch in the direction of the industrial site. Calling, of course. :mrgreen:

11:59 feeding? Or just sighting a parent?

In any case, at least two squeak ... I think all three teenage H's with excitement.

July 14th

05:17 Quiet, a Mini H is sneaking through the side entrance.
Pokes a little frustrated in the empty nest and jumps on the viewing branch.

Image

Image

Image

Well, I don't dare mention it if I can't read the rings. Those rings are really hard to read ... dumb it.
There are slight features on tail feathers for example, but it is very unsafe. :unsure:


05:21 The young person leaves the branch, flies to the yellow mast and calls. .... his calls remain lonely.

07:00 Now the experiment through the small entrance. :mrgreen:

Try to sit well ... :laugh:

07:01 Now a sibling can also be heard.
It's probably both the girls.

It starts nesting, easy sorting of sticks before the little one actually starts his break in the former nursery.

Image

Image

07:28 She flies to the side branch and leaves the tree in '32 in the group of trees on the left.
Image

16:48 The sky opens its floodgates ... it would be a blessing for many other regions as well.

But soon afterwards the first complaint can be heard. :laugh:

With all the tricks ... 8-)

20:13:05 A junior is now taking the pixelated way home.
Yes, that's how they are ... the youth creeps secretly. :mrgreen:

Good to see at last - H94. :innocent:

Image

She lies and rests ...

Image

Image

The eyebrows almost like her mother H21. :innocent:

20:57 In the area, one of them continues to nag while this girl is looking for peace. :innocent:

This feather, a flight feather?
Or under-tail feather ... yes, probably. :help:

Image

21:03 Her sibling starts yelling excitedly ... it seems to be moving and is getting closer to the nest. The girl leaves the nest like lightning.
Possibly a parent in attendance.

In the end, with so much branching and hiding, they have not let us see much of the first flights, we estimate that it has occurred in some of them around July 6 or a little more.

I have seen one of the chickens that on the left tail feather (seen from behind) marks the "V" in the two narrower dark bands.

When they have seen each other with the mother, they all seemed smaller than her but it does seem that one of them is smaller than the others.

July 15th

Emi :hi:


I think the youngest of the three chicks does well out of the territory. (I hope)
Certainly in the company of a parent, but you can actually only hear and see two of the young people. And you can rely on them ... . :laugh:

05:09 First nagging in the territory.

05:10 The hunger drives the little one into the nest.
She lands on the side branch and tries to draw attention to herself at all heights of the branch and with shouts.

05:12 The juvenile flies to the industrial site without success ... calling.

I don't hear any more voices.
Alone in the area?

from 18:23 to hear energetic begging.
I think two voices. For a moment it sounded like a parent had appeared.

20:11 H44 brings food to the nest (not without 'gjak' :innocent: ) ...and the children are quickly at table. :laugh:

To me it seems like he's waiting for the second juvenile to arrive. One is already with him. But he hesitates to let go.
Only when the second child arrives does he withdraw.

It did not help - the first encased and immediately defended the lining. The other retreats to a branch in the tree.

Hm, actually I am assuming the older siblings. According to our guess, both would be girls. Here the second seems more delicate ... which could infer boy.

It defends for a while, stands on the food, but then starts to eat.

20:33 The number of guests at the table is increasing. Now the second child flutters back into the nest and brings maternal support with it.

H21 looks up ... H44 is probably still present.

Nothing helps - the food is not shared. :mrgreen:

20:42 The young person stops eating, positions himself to the side and now his sibling comes to eat.
A nice moment. :innocent:
H92?
Image

Image

This mutual agreement is interrupted when H21 returns to the nest.
Both go back to defense mode and one of the children retreats to a branch.

I don't know why H21 does it but she roughly pulls the food away from her child a few times. And began to feed .... :puzzled:

Man i'm going crazy ...
For a moment it looked as if the child was feeding its mother. :rotf:
My goodness. Definitely mother and daughter ... they are almost the same size and fight like women. :laugh:
