At 16:51-52, both storklets started begging/chirping.
A black stork was nearby.
He flew in the forest, from the right to the left at about 16:52:12-14

16:51:40 "Hallelujah, there is Dad with food!"
Image

16:52:05 "Stop singing, O. This isn't Dad." - "Really? Too bad."
Image

16:52:14 A BS flew in the forest.

I just overheard A asking O - "Shall we go ourselves and try to find something to eat? It seems that daddy has something more important to do now."

Thank you, Summi! :2thumbsup:
I will make some pics.

Karl II brought a nice pile of frogs. :thumbs:
I think Kati wrote on the reverse of her farewell "note": "Don't forget to feed the children some frogs, honey." :mrgreen:

"Yes, this time it is Dad!"
Image

A first load of frogs.
Image

More frogs. :D

They are very greedy! A in particular.
Image

The last food item drops on the nest floor. Maybe a fish? :puzzled:
Image

A has not forgotten the battle over the huge fish and is determined to conquer at least this little one!
He did! :D

Yesterday at 11.42 Kati pooped on the nest. Maybe she said with this marking - Bye-bye, friends, Karl II, as a trustworthy partner, will take over my duties
I didn't know at the time when this was written yesterday that Karl II indeed takes over Kati's duties and brings frogs.

For those who have not voted yet, here is the name poll:
viewtopic.php?f=2&t=986

It's still undecided!
For our storklet with ring number 716O, currently the names "Oru" and "Oivi" are in joint first place. Both names have 18 votes. :2thumbsup:
Your vote could, therefore, be decisive!

The poll runs till tomorrow morning, July 26th at 7:47 a.m. :D
I have not voted yet because I don't know how to do it. :blush:

i have read back and realized that A and O made early flights today.
I took a look into the archive files:
both were already awake at 3:45. in the darkness they preened themselve almost half an hour. then were standing along there around 2 hours (with napping including) on the nest.
it seems they planed their early trips:
a video with scenes how they communicate "verbal", they also preened each other and then were ready to discover the forest.

Biker, thank you. It's interesting to watch live and in a nutshell how they communicate with each other. :wave:

Good night all

Thanks, everyone, for today's contributions!

Summi, probably you can also hear words that float through the air to you, like Jo! :D :thumbs:

Pica, you're welcome. Thank you too.

Thank you, Biker, for this very early morning video!

Sleep well, storklets.
Sleep well, everyone.
:wave:

Tomorrow I'll be away all day.

: hi: balistar and everyone.
i didn't saw that the take offs and landings are already in work : blush: :blush: perhaps i better should remove the clip : unsure:
Biker, :wave: you should better not remove your excellent video. It is the only one we have from this great landing! :nod: As you wrote, it was yesterdays landing (from 24.07.2019, 07:45). From that event there is no other video available.
The video balistar talked about was that from todays morning, - that one with many starts and landings.

So no weather problem, but a good idea. :D

Thanks a lot everyone for todays pictures, reports and videos! Liz, special thanks for todays exciting morning report and the video! Biker, the clip with the poor butterfly is very interesting. I hope he could survive.

Sova :hi: , I‘m also happy to see you here more often!

i see, Michi, obviously the problem is: I can not follow the chronology :banghead: , which is indeed more worrying than the reason (which i now can't also retrace no more) for the idea to remove the clip.
:slap:

see you tomorrow :wave:

Biker, in your post about the video you wrote: here is a video of the beautiful flight back to the nest by O. Yesterday morning 7:45.
That is very correct, no irritations possible.

Indeed it is not easy to follow the chronology. The days are running fast and every day many remarkable events happen. Every day a lot of new pages are written in the forum.
An hour ago I reasoned when 716A has made its maiden flight, - yesterday or the day before? So what?

You can also raise the question why nobody else noticed that your video was brand new and not a repeat of something which was already posted in the forum. Instead, all have just said, even if it is similar, do not delete. :rolleyes:
I suppose, the reason is: In these eventful days many of us have similar problems to remember if an event has happened for example yesterday morning or the day before yesterday. The events are overtaking each other.
So please, don’t worry about it! I think it’s normal for all people who don't have the time to follow the events and especially the big amount of reports in the forum the whole day.

Lastly some pictures from the evening.

21:51 Preening time. 716O wants to help its sibling. :)
Image

22:00 Two adorable beauties. :D
Image

22:08 What are the storklets thinking about? Do they already feel the inner urge to fly to the south? Maybe not yet. But I'm sure they want to see what's behind the forest. :rolleyes:

Franco :wave: , a late but warm welcome to the forum and thank you for your kind words!
I'm impressed you've been following the Estonian Black Storks for so many years. Then you have watched the Black Storks life from the beginning of this forum and you know all the stories about the former nests and their inhabitants!? Wow! :bow: That's kind of enviable. :D

The two remaining children seem to have developed an excellent character and friendship with each other. Is this perhaps due to the dangers they have overcome?
Yes, these two have experienced a lot with their siblings. I am not an expert but I would not exclude that they are so close to each other because of all the dangers they must experience together. So much affection for each other ... it is noticeable. I haven't seen it this way before.

Hello visit, :hi:
yes, it's a precious time, now, when our storklets are still here. Very soon they will leave the nest. Maybe in 5 days or in a week? In 10 days? I will enjoy every day our "babies" are still with us. It's short enough. :rolleyes:
