.... Now I'm pretty sure it is Gaja! Gaja had a black feather on hér right side! This feather is still visible :loveshower:
Good afternoon to everyone, hello Liz, a lot of thanks to you for your documentation. I could not watch practically anything for a week (because of finalizing my work) and now what a nice surprise that this cam is on and even a female is here :loveshower: . And of course double joy if it is our Gaja :2thumbsup: .
However the nest is in very bad condition (I almost forgot it). We will see how they can deal with it :bow: . :wave:

Sue, you're very welcome :laugh:

poor Kaupo will have to do a lot! But Tobias nest was destroyed too. At the age of 19, he has rebuild the nest in a very short time. He was great! And I still miss him.

Gaja had this black feather on the right since she came to the nest 2018! I did not notice it at the beginning. That was much later in the season. I am not sure if I or someone else has seen this characteristic first.

6:55 She removes some loose pieces from the nest............
That's when I thought she would not brood here. she looked like, she did think that the nest would not be safe.
Then I remembered that this nest was not build again and again by Kaupo and Gaja. That was another couple.

So we have to wait and see what happens.
Today my English skills are not available :slap: I've to go for a while.
