12:22h I don't know if there was a food delivery :puzzled: . Cam was frozen and I saw only this picture :blush:

I think on the left side it is a glimpse of a parent to see.

17:52h Mārcis is doing a lot of jumpings and wing exercises.
It's the first time I noticed this "white thing" on his breast/crop :puzzled: . I'm confused what is it... Only white feathers? It looks very strange.

Maybe Mārcis has too big crop? :rotf: (I think I´ve seen a white chest also on Kai, but not that big.)

Starling: Good, you noticed this "white thing" on Kai too. So it is maybe really because his crop is so full.

No wonder he is full, he has been eating almost every time I have peeked in today :mrgreen:

Good to know. Everytime when I take a look to the cam, he was alone in the nest.

As I remember it, Mārcis has been much more alone in the nest, than Miks was last year. Is that right?

21:41 - But when the evening arrives, Metra arrives too :thumbs: I think Eha could learn a little from Metra on that point :nod:

Yes, I think you are right :nod: .

When I wrote I saw Mārcis today the most time alone in the nest, I meant exactely: I didn't see a delivery or feeding. I'm sorry, it was a mistake of mine :blush: .

It's really interesting to see the different behaviour of Eha and Metra. Metra isn't much at home during daytime but she spent nearly every night in the nest.

Manu, a great idea! An Oriole..I would have guessed, so different from the call it makes in the spring. Thank you, Vainamoinen.
Manu, also thank you for your pictures from today :wave:

19:54 - I think Mr McNasty yelling again! Mārcis is curious about him, Metra seems tired..

19:55 - Very tired indeed..
