A wonderful cam this is.
If the BS shouldn´t come this year it´s good to have another great cam where to go then.

I saw both eagles in the morning. Gorgeous birds. :loveshower:

Hmmm...seems that we have name 'problem' again? :rolleyes:
we can't go on calling them male-female...

My suggestion:
male - Alo (old Estonian name = Sunrise, dawn)
female - Eha (old Estonian name = Sunset, dusk)

Though - those names could be ticky to pronounce for non-Estonians...
Liis - would you please help me explain the pronouncing?

Great name suggestions, Yarko!

Alo like the -alo- in Palo Alto? Frenchmen pronouncing Hallo? Cockney 'ullo? Eha like rehab and keep the e as e in nest, and a as in class? :mrgreen: - Sorry, no good on pronunciations!
But look - people have sound recordings of birds, boars, wolves and whatever all over the forums - so - someone with a nice, clear Estonian voice, please?

Hello!
Seems the Lesser Spotted Eagles are the same individuals as last year in that nest.
You are right - male eagle is smaller, slim, with narrower head, darker, with pale eyebrow stripe - he should bring more food into nest and therefore be more away.

Names:
Eha - OK
but for male if to mention sunrise, would be 'Koit' in Estonian as another word.

Interesting that the prey contains mainly frogs - usually they prefer mice...
If you could determine the prey brought to nest, please write about that!

At us their name from the frog lasts ("Békász sas"). I know it, they like the frogs, and the lizards.

There are no chain-saw sounds now.
What a good thing that this nest is watched by so many people!

Chain saws started again 13.33 nest time.
Empty nest.

13.42 The chain saw sounds are closer - maybe that is because the wind has dropped and we can hear more clearly now.

Voices, shouting.

There is silence now (Thanks for Urmas! :bow: ). But the birds do not sing yet, and I do not hear the eagles.
