8:07 Madis arrives - with a branch.

Image


The chick looks up and calls for food, and Piret finds a fish - but she eats it herself! Then she feeds some to the chick.


8:08
Image


8:17 Piret suddenly flies off the nest and Madis soon arrives. The chick is very vocal.


8:19 Madis finds the piece of fish and starts to pull at it.
Piret returns with a branch. They both dance around the nest - not sure what to do!?

8:23 Piret snags the half-eggshell with a talon and pulls it out of the nest bowl

8:27 Piret has the piece of fish, and sometimes takes a bite. She chirps a bit. She and Madis circle the nest, looking at the chick and at each other.

8:28 Madis takes off. Piret settles down. The chick keeps chirping

They knów what to do! Next year it will be the same with the 1st bird. Maybe because they have instincts and not a memory that goes back that far :puzzled:

Madis seems to want to feed the chick, does 1 attempt and lies down.

Edit: Piret at the cam? I hear sounds there.

9.24 Piret in nest sleeping, Madis probably upstairs
9.52 Madis came in nest. They both were occupied by some barck for a minut or so then Piret left the eggs, found the tailpiece of a fich in the nestbowl and began to eat. Junior woke op and asked for food, and Madis was looking very curious at his offspring. Piret looked too, but seemed not to know for real how to handle this and didn´t offer junior anything, but did eat the rest of the fish herself (or perhaps this part of fish wasn´t suited for a junior?)

The last time has been calm, Piret is covering eggs and junior and no junior sounds - I haven´t been able to stay at cam. so I don´t know if Madis still is upstairs

I have to close cam. now - - - wish all a nice day

First feeding (I assume) and Madis is blocking the view :cry:

But I can not blame him, he is so involved in the little one, it is moving.

Strong wind, it seems like thunder in the air.
Piret away, then at the nest and away again.

And back again.

Sweet Madis, you are blocking the view again. We like to see if there is a feeding going on.
