And a fox immediately after they went away.
And the RD couple as soon as the fox went away.

16:14 the sick raccoon dogs are still eating there...
at 16:03 a third animal walked along the back side of Long Island. it looked like the sick fox. it stopped where there's a shallow point, some sort of a pit, and is now digging there laying low.
Image

at 16:16 it seems that now the other RD has left. the other has two ravens as company.

ame wrote:16:18 fox seemed to attack on the RD! at least it wanted to chase the RD away from its skin.
the fox ran straight towards the RD but it had almost as much impact on the RD as if the fox had ran agaist a wall. the fox then settled on the other skin and the RD continued eating its own.


the fox ate boar skin for quite some time. it made itself comfortable: it was lying on the skin.
Image

then finally it got a piece ripped off and carried it to the forest. i think the piece may have been the foot with the hoof.
Image

17:00 now both racoon dogs are there

Today no eagles were seen at the feeding ground. Very few birds visited the ground, among them a buzzard, but a fox and raccoon dogs infected by mange were eating the remaining skins in broad daylight.

after 12 a group of ravens came to eat.


13:00 raccoon dogs came back and now ravens are a bit puzzled about what to do.

No eagles were seen at the feeding ground, but some ravens visited the ground. A fox came to eat twice in the daytime and in the moonlight night raccoon dogs came to the forest opening and made noise.

9.26 eagle call ... - s-he is close
ame wrote:i don't think they have been eagle calls... i think there have been black woodpeckers calling here. in the early morning i first mistook those calls coming from Linda's but it was from here. there were two of them actually and it sounded like a territory dispute. the voices were rather weird. they made me think of some multicoloured South-American parrots.

it's a shame i didn't understand that the voices were coming from here this morning so i made no recordings. the two-bird-song sounded really interesting.
the bird was calling here for a long time....
The calls on the video do sound like eagles but probably they were not. Opinions are welcome!
