I don't think they have to learn what eggs are good for, it's in their genes to know that. There must be other reasons, why everything goes wrong this year.

Is it going to be the first time when Tiina does not come home for night? :puzzled:

Possibly, I wonder, since there are no eggs to brood and mating season is about over, maybe the desire to stay at the nest site is waning. :puzzled: Mating season usually follows with care of eggs and raising chicks. I wonder what Tiina will do.

Nobody has come back.........
No movement, no shape... nothing but the barking of a dog
That makes me feeling so sad.

Hello all, :hi:
I feel the same as you do, - it's a very sad evening without Tiina in the nest. :unsure:
But somehow I'm not surprised, that Tiina doesn't come back for the night. It fits to the strange situation. Tiina must feel better than we all, that the preparation of breeding is not going the way it should. It is likely, that nature has a plan B in this case, - so that the bird can spend a “normal” summertime without being stressed.
I really hope our Tiina isn’t that sad as we are. :cry:

21:25 Not nice pictures ... empty nest ...

This sounds very logical and comprehensible. So sad it is ...
Thank you, loveofnature!

Does anybody know if there is hunting going on? We hear dogs barking and howling in the background (could it be the howling of wolves?).

We don't believe that the storks are not there because they were afraid. But we would like to know what is going on there . . . Thanks in advance!

BTW: in the background one can also very often hear a boreal owl calling (not only today but other evenings too).

I can hear the dogs too (there are more than one, different ones)

Re hunting - Juta wrote in the Alutguse topic:

In my opinion that couldn't be wolves. I hear many voices of dogs. Some sounds like smaller dogs with bright voice, some "normally", and there are also big dogs with deep voice barking. And - indeed - howling. But I believe, that wolves have another kind of howling.

Isn't hunting prohibited in spring and summer?

Now all is quiet.

Edit: At 22:01 again barking of a bigger dog. But now only from one dog and only once.
Edit 2: I am sorry, I was wrong. Barking goes on, but further away than before.

Leona, it´s hard to answer your question because there is no such place where to see where and when the hunting is going on. There is no hunting season just now except wild boars and raccoon dogs.

Many thanks for all your answers. May be we will get some further information during the next days . . .

I remember the night years ago when we heard the wolves' pack in the boars cam . . . Some days later we heard that their prey was found not far away.

Boreal owl is already calling in the distance.

This was definitvely dog barking and not the howling of wolfes.

I have been waiting for many months for the camera to be active on the black stock nest of Estonia.......and now it's over already. Maybe Tiina will come visit in the morning. I miss you beautiful Tiina. :cry: :cry: And, yes, I hope she has a peaceful stress free summer.

April 23

04:50 The light is getting brighter and brighter, but there are no storks on the nest (or on the branches, as far as I can see).

(but .. there are sounds as though someone is close by, on a branch that is out of sight. In addition, the morning bird song can be heard.)

Good morning everybody! :wave:

Hello Mixi :hi:
Yesterday, I thought that, too. But look:
baska wrote: First I was shocked because I thought, this white thing in front of her might be an egg,
but while Tiina was tidying up, I could see that it was a feather....

Yesterday she lost a lot of white feathers.

This morning I don't know what to say. I'm so mixed up about this ongoing.....
I just hope Tiina is well and everything will develop positively.
greetings from Baska

Yesterday at night i thought I could hear Tiina preening (its a typical sound when they draw their feathers through their beak). And I think I can hear her now in the morning as well. May be she is standing on or above or behind the cam in the morning sun.
