This is Tiina but why she moves and constantly changes her position? I don't remember what was last year at the time, because the cam was mainly off.

I´m still not able to distinguish between the male and the female BS :blush: . The bird changed the position not constantly, but it rose several times, checked/rolled the eggs and layed down again. It stood in the nest always for a very short time. Maybe Tiina/Tiit can hear the voices of the young in the eggs? :headroll:

Maertha :hi: To see the difference between Tiit and Tiina I look at their beaks. Tiit has a darker field in the middle of his beak than Tiina. Other may have other marks.

We must show the same patience as Tiina & Tiit... :faint:

Thanks, Lussi! Interesting, I have never noticed that. :wave: Does this mark work for you also if you see only one bird in the nest?

20:05 Egg check again, only for a few seconds.

Hello maertha :wave:

you can fix the difference to two details.
Me, I'm looking mainly at the eyes:
The red ring around the eyes of Tiit seems smaller and is closed towards the beak.
The red ring around the eyes of Tiina is bigger and open towards the beak.

(Captured just three days ago by Olga)

Here you can see also very well the difference between the colour of the beaks.

Tiina's legs are more red and Tiit's are a bit darker. So this is Tiina.

Thank you, asteria. As yet I was only able to say who is who when I saw a mating scene :unsure: . Maybe I´ll learn to distinguish between them during this breeding season by using more subtle hints. :mrgreen:

22:17 Another check, one minute later the next one. The latter was not visible for pontu.

22:17/22:18

22:45 It´s pitch-dark now, and so far no chicks. The eggs were visible at last at 22:18.
Edit: Again visible, more or less, again at 22:50

:wave:

Is there a tiny something at one egg or do I see ghosts meanwhile? :puzzled:

Perhaps one or two eggs are "talking".

Check pontu pics from 5 or 6 o'clock tomorrow, the day after tomorrow, the day after after tomorrow etc.
