For the first time in Romania, a nest of the saker falcon is monitored by video of the Wildlife Protection Association because the last breeding pairs of the saker falcon in Romania only in the Banat and Dobrogea.

While we are waiting and hoping for Saker falcons appearing in the nest box, we can observe a kestrel using the box as a sleeping place.

Yes, Ferenz, I understand. I meant the description "intermediates" is not a good word for a animal and here for a bird.

Well Birdfriend You are right: I wanted to note that in the meantime the cute kestrels are interim visitors, but I don't exspect that they have a chance to breed in this nest....
