Yes, both are Spotted Eagles but the behavior of LSE and GSE is very different :nod:

20:17 - male without rings brought in more twigs.

When I opened the cam and saw a bird with ring I believed I was meeting Magnus for the first time, but I real in your posts that it`s a female with ring. Thank you for all your reports, everybody :wave:

Video clips about this evenings´ nest building process.

Fascinating how they "weave" the sticks, place curved branches to give the basis for roundish shape of the nest

It was an exciting day on the nest, even with less time to watch it was easy to catch one or both.
Have you seen how they immediately become "long-legged" the moment both are on the nest :mrgreen: It's nice to see in Lussi's post from 8.17. Courtship ... :whistling:
On the other hand, I wonder what will happen if Magnus should still turn up. The male has already quite settled down and invested a lot of work. Will it be like it was when "Mr Blond" turned up on Tuuli's nest before Remo returned? Watching bird nests is much more exciting than watching TV!

Good morning :hi:

Now, at 10:50, the nest is empty, so they are having a break.
These birds are early morning birds :nod: They seem to have decorated the cam a little bit also, easter decoration :D

Thank you for your reports :wave:
