LSE nest Estonia

Post by Felis silvestris » March 27th, 2020, 2:09 pm

The stream for a new Lesser Spotted Eagle Nest in Estonia went online

So far we know that this is the nest of LSE "Karin" (viewtopic.php?p=716976#p716976) and she's a neighbour of last year's breeding couple Maia and Magnus (viewtopic.php?f=25&t=975) in Tartumaa. Her partner, whom we called "Indrek" was ringed and fitted with a GPS transmitter last year to be part of a project by Estonian University of Life Sciences (Eesti Maaülikool) in order to study the habitat use of Greater and Lesser Spotted Eagles, with special attention to agricultural landscapes, conducted by Ülo Väli.


The stream is provided via the YouTube stream by Kotkaklubi: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCvBXT ... Saqd19N0Sg

Present stream address is:

(In case the stream address is changing, the latest one can be found via the Kotkaklubi address)

About the birds:

Female is named "Karin", ring "LV" and is fitted with a transmitter since 2011:
Female Lesser Spotted Eagle Karin breed in 2011 together with Kaarel and they had a chick grown up. Trapping of Karin was not planned actually, but when we equipped Kaarel with transmitter also Karin flew into the net. So we did not leave that opportunity... And now we have the possibility to observe the home range using of a pair, also to follow the migration. The autumn migration Karin and Kaarel started in the same day, 17th of September, but not together.
As during the autumn migration 2011 the mate of Karin disappeared in Uganda, Karin did not breed in 2012, but was single on territory.

Male is a ringed (C25) and fitted with transmitter bird from a project by Tartu University of Life Sciences, the ring was put upsidedown by mistake, he was caught and ringed as an adult in 2019 and has got no name so far.
The forum people have named the male "Indrek": viewtopic.php?p=731835#p731835

:hi:

6:26 - 6:28 This LSE with transmitter was also on the nest, the cam picture is too blurry to read it's ring, the cam is focused to the tree trunk and more on the right side, not on the nest

Watching the birdmap I suppose it's the male LSE Mälgandi :D, he spent his winter holidays in Mozambique, Niassa Reserve 8-)

14:18:58 The cam stopped

16:58 The cam stream is back

EDIT at 22:55: - 14.04 evening there is new update on the birdmap and it shows that Mälgandi sent data near Ceikiniai in Lithuania and non of the Estonian LSE with transmitter have not yet arrived in Estonia :puzzled: , who was then this bird I don't know, may be one of the Latvian LSE :?:

White colour rings means, that it is Estonian bird. Latvian LSE have orange rings

Looking at yesterdays pictures one of the letters on the left ring could be an X, if that is any help?

A tip: listen to the bird concert starting around 5 am, impressive :D
