He made a very short tour from and back to the attic

It would be a good idea to cover all his poops on the nest with a new moss floor :mrgreen:

Looks like he was not far for the moss, the twigs on the left side were shaking immediately before he came down on the nest again

Is this normal after the shock ? He did it for the first time while he was waiting for her to come back.
I think this behaviour is quite normal. I have seen it on all the nests I have been following over the last years. Don't forget, they are teenagers now, and whoever ever has or had teenagers at home will know what I refer to :mrgreen:

For all those worrying abut Ziluka not coming back right away ... remember, it took Ziluks also some time to be able to return to the nest. She even may decide to find it nicer to be with her parents rather than on the nest and not show up again. Although I think in the early afternoon she was around for a while, based on Ziluks behaviour.

Didn't Ziluks return first after two days outside the nest?
And I don't believe in 'psychosomatic symptom explanations' regarding Ziluks' pooping on the nest, I believe his pooping is natural and normal where ever it hits. :mrgreen:

@Rut - I have moved the post about the transmitter here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=785
Maybe the further discussion about transmitters can be held there. Thanks.

You are right, the girl came for a visit in the afternoon and that's why her brother was so excited.

When we saw him screaming and looking under the nest (during our family lunch), It didn't look like an intruder.
We were joking that his curious little sister wanted to visit or she may have lost something where she was falling, and now she went to look for her silver shoe or her golden crown :rotf:

I think that now there are no "treasures" in the nest for the intruder, and the chicks can fly away to avoid him.

Thank you all so much for your reports, pictures and videos! :2thumbsup:
It's such a pleasure and very interesting to follow the behavior of Ziluks and Ziluka and their parents.
Special thanks to Macko for the video of the 10:55 feeding. :D It's wonderful to see when Zile and Ozols are greeting each other, and I've missed it a long time. Thanks a lot! :2thumbsup:

Now, at 23:10, it's raining constantly. Sometimes more, sometimes less. I think, it's no problem for our youngsters.
