This behavior of Miina is interesting. What does that say? Miina too young? :puzzled:
I asked myself that too. But I have not observed many ospreys, so I say nothing

No, does not mean she is too young. She may be a 1st time Mom, but not necessarily, other birds do this as well. I remember the male of a Peregrine Falcon, already a parent for several years. He did it every season. Sometimes even bringing the prey in the nestbowl, as if they could eat it themselves :-))

Yeah, I meant mom for the first time. Maybe Marko is also a dad for the first time. He's worried. :D

18:26 Marko is back and doing nestwork. He seems anxious. Miina is probably telling him to go fishing.

18:29 Marko flies off again.

Today both birds seem to be nervous and talk a lot. Is it possible that somebody might hatch today or tomorrow? :shake:

18:47 It's like Miina saw something and suddenly flies off, but she is back again shortly. I think I heard the chicks chatting inside the eggs, when Miina was gone.
When she comes back, someone - probably Marko - flies past.
Then Miina settles down again.

Meike :hi:

Yes, one chick is to be expected very soon. Exciting times! :nod:
