June 13

Good Morning all Emotion, Birdfriend, Solo, Abigyl and all :hi:

Birdfriend, thanks a lot for beautiful pictures and reporting :2thumbsup: I enjoy that very much

the cam is offline since 2:39!
I think there were strong thunderstorms in Latvia as well?
Yesterday we had a very bad weather again. The poor birds. It was hailing and there were incredible amounts of rain in a very short time. The day before was a state of emergency in Berlin. Everything was under water. As in Estonia, there was heavy rain all night and many flashes. After seeing the pictures of the storklets on the Estonian nest, I can imagine how bad it was for storks and other big birds.

Good morning Liz,
yesterday before absolute dark I noticed very strong windy weather. Maybe also here were thunderstorm later.
I hope that our Kaupo, Gaja and their nice nest are O.K and we will have also stream.

Btw. I saw shots and vids from WS nests in Germany yesterday :bow:

Good afternoon!
The livestream has stopped working overnight. Jānis Ķ. is informed, can not do anything remotely, should be on the spot. As a possible defect could be the wires attached to the trees.

Very interersting ;

VII International Conference on Black
Stork Ciconia nigra: programme and abstracts
Doñana National Park, Spain. 28th - 30th November 2018

Session 1: Black Stork Population and Trends
Session 2: Threatens and Conservation of Black Stork
Session 3: Ecology and Behaviour of Black Stork
Session 4: Movements, Tracking, Ringing & Migration

Males, Females and Black Stork Nests: Who Owns What and Do They Hold Territories?
Maris STRAZDS
Laboratory of Ornithology, Institute of Biology, University of Latvia, Latvia
Corresponding author; E-mail: mstrazds@latnet.lv
Extensive ringing programme of Black Stork juveniles in Latvia started in 1990. Up
until 2017, 1,603 juvenile storks had been ringed. In 2011, first remote sensing cameras
were installed, and one of the nests has been permanently observed with a webcam
since 2015. As of 2016, data from 20 cameras can be explored simultaneously.
Obtained material comprises more than 1.2M pictures collected near 92 nests. From this
material, more than 772K pictures from 41 nests, along with the videos filmed at two
webcam-equipped nests, have been used for analyses of territorial behaviour and mate
choice during the breeding season. In this talk, I discuss the validity of the widely
explored concept of the "territorial” or “non-breeding pair" – a parameter that strongly
affects all indices of productivity for any given territory. The data obtained exclusively
from observations of ringed individuals with known sex and other individually
identifiable birds suggest that this term is not relevant for Black Stork, consequently, all
breeding success data should be reassessed. Similarly, the assumption that males own
the nest appears not to be correct at least in some cases. The question whether it is true
only for Storks in the surveyed range or characterises species as a whole should be the
subject of a wider study over much larger territory in the future.

Gigi,
I think they are all very busy right now. With ringing by different birds. Here is no breeding pair. Therefore it will not have first priority. :unsure:

AKŪTI NEPIECIEŠAMA PALĪDZĪBA MELNO STĀRĶU IZPĒTES DARBAM ŠAJĀ SEZONĀ!!!
Esam saņēmuši ziņu no melno stārķu pētnieka un ornitologa Māra Strazda, kā vārdā vēršamies pie sabiedrības un lūdzam palīdzību šīs sezonas melno stārku izpētes darbam.
Nepieciešamais atbalsts pirmkārt ir nepieciešams pie ligzdām, lai ar arborista palīdzību varētu pārvietot pēc nepieciešamības treilkameras un veikt melno stārķu mazuļu gredzenošanu tur, kur tas ir iespējams. Tam nepieciešams auto un degviela. Otrkārt nepieciešams atbalsts atkārtotam braucienam uz Baltkrieviju pie vienīgā dzīvā ar raidītāju aprīkotā melnā stārķa Mares, lai lejuplādētu raidītāja datus par vasaru.
Kopējā nepieciešamā summa ir ap 800 EUR. Lūdzam ikviena atbalstu, kam ir aktuāla melno stārķu izpētes tēma un izpētes rezultāti. Māris Strazds šobrīd ir tuvu salūšanas robežai, un no mūsu atbalsta ir atkarīgs tas, vai izpēte pie melnā stārķa spēs turpināties.Tikai zinātniskā izpēte ir tā, kas spēj kaut nedaudz sniegt priekšstatu par pašreizējās mežistrādes sekām un sniegt datus par ķīmisko piesārņojumu un tā sekām mums apkārt. Ja katrs no melnā stārķa atbalstītājiem ziedos kaut 5 EUR, nepieciešamā summa savāksies ļoti ātri 🙏🙏🙏


Konts ziedojumiem –
Latvijas Ornitoloģijas biedrība
Reģ. nr.: 40008002230
Banka: AS "Swedbank"
Bankas kods: HABALV22
Konts: LV34HABA000140J035491
Mērķis: ziedojums melnajam stārķim


Īsumā par Māra Strazda pirmo braucienu pie Mares: Māris nupat ir atgriezies no Ķaļiņingradas, kur ir sekmīgi atradis Mares ligzdu un lejuplādējis putna pērnā gada datus. Dati šobrīd goris.lv nav ievietoti, taču taču tas ir saistīts ar kolēģu lauku darbiem. Pie ligzdas Māris bija 15.jūnijā. Mares ligzdā tobrīd bija viens vai divi apmēram līdz 10 dienām veci mazuļi, taču kāpšana pie ligzdas netika veikta drošības labad. Mares ligzda atrodas ozolā, mežs ir skaists, tuvumā tikai viens izcirtums, savukārt ārpus meža nav praktiski nekādas lauksaimniecības. Latvijā šādu skatu ir gandrīz nereāli atrast. Māris Mari arī ir redzējis aci pret aci, taču drošības apstākļu dēļ netika ņemta līdzi fotoaparatūra. Atkārtots brauciens būtu vērtīgs, lai redzētu, cik bērni ir izauguši, kā arī savākt vasaras datus.
