Good afternoon, Liz :hi:

A drama in the LSE nest! I hope it doesn`t spoil the nesting season.

15:00 - Bird in the nest, with frog. To me it looks like the female? It`s because I think the eyebrows looks «weaker». It`s how I manage to separate from each other. I wonder if it`s another male, or female. Could it be that Betina has arrived?

The bird left the nest with the frog after some minutes. S/he is calling from the forest.

15:40 - Still calling outside of the view.

Edit: I posted the picture a bit later, because I was hungry too:-)

I also considered, if it was Betina. I think there were two females in the nest and one LSE was outside the nest on the branch.

Thank you Liz, I have changed it back to what I first wrote. I`m in trouble this season, I have difficulty separating them from each other :blush:
I hope this fight doesn`t destroy the season, I`m a bit worried about it.
