mogga, thank you for the pictures. :wave: Especially for the one of Iiris pulling at one of Ivo's breast feathers, was it a gesture of fondness? 8-)

There was something dark (some little stick or pair of dry pine needles?) stuck in Ivo's breast feathers. It was visible earlier at 0:11-0:35 in the video clip.

Iiris helped by removing it.

Hi Sunshine, thank you for the beautiful pictures, especially the one with the golden sunset and mogga for the lovely video with Ivo and Iiris. So nice to watch when Iiris pulled out a breast feather from Ivo. The way he looks at her is devoting.

Good morning dear people!

Iiris came at 11:30am to see if Ivo wants her to take over but he didn't :rolleyes: So she flew away

A good wife always pays attention how her husband looks like - whether his necktie is straight and that there isn't any scraps on the jacket. :laugh:

Thank you, all for the beautiful pictures, video and comments. :wave:

18:21 Ivo takes off suddenly, eggs alone for 5 minutes
18:26 Iiris flies in with her uneaten fish
18:25 Ivo rushes to the dead tree to chase away a strange osprey
18:27 and 18.35 the strange osprey comes back on top of the dead tree, Ivo chases it away
19:00 Ivo arrives with a big stick and happily takes the fish Iiris has kept for him

21:17 Iiris arrived for the night shift

Good night :offtobed:

May 10, 2020 - 9:05 am Estonian time

Good morning on a beautiful mother's day. Ivo came to the nest to replace Iiris. Birds sing in their highest tones, in the distance you can hear geese, flies hum around the nest. What a beautiful morning.

Iiris has come back to replace Ivo and Ivo took off into the woods. Iiris was probably fishing because her breast feathers looked very wet. These replacements from Iiris and Ivo, to take care of the eggs, run smoothly. Iiris looks satisfied, I guess she had a delicious breakfast.

Iiris does not stay on the nest immediately, but flies away again for 3 minutes. You can hear her a bit excited, she seems to chase / scare someone away. But I could not see anything. She then comes back to the nest from the opposite direction.
