15:15 Ivo comes to replace Iiris who has been sitting on the eggs for almost 5 hours.
15:23 Iiris is back with a long stick and Ivo is happy to let her incubate. :innocent:

16:01 Ivo comes with a small twig :headroll: and disappointed Iiris decides to go fishing herself.

18:05 Ivo begins to carry sticks to fortify the nest against attacks. Iiris is not happy about it and better not to be in the way decides to take off. :laugh:

18:23 Iiris is back but Ivo is not willing to leave, at last Iiris gets the upper hand. 8-)

19:44 Ivo brings the fish tail rather than the fish tail part for Iiris. :whistling:

20:14 Iiris jumps from the cam stand and replaces Ivo on the nest.

Good morning friends. :wave:
On a sunny morning Iiris was flying to the nest with a long, narrow branch in her beak. Ivo, who was guarding the eggs, got up and flew into the forest. No interfering during the night.
Thank you all for the beautiful pictures and nice comments.

Thank you Summi :thumbs: , I'm always relaxed when I watch the nest in the morning and everything looks peaceful. Iiris and Ivo are a perfect team and I can hardly wait until the first egg cracks. :D

Sunshine, thank you. :wave: I was wrong - fishtail is really the right word for this breakfast. Yesterday almost no food and today a tail.
Ivo, you are the head of the household, pull your socks up and start providing Iiris with fish.
