do you think so, Abigyl. :mrgreen:

9:46 a fairly big bird flew from the left and and landed on a tree in the meadow, under the poop branch. two minutes later the bird flew away.
this picture is taken about two second before the bird took off.
Image

the bird didn't look big enough to be an eagle. however, it looked bigger than a crow. a buzzard??

13:15:30 a fairly big grey bird flew by from left to right.
was it big enough for an eagle? :puzzled:
could be, but it was so light that it would be an adult. an adult eagle's tail would shine bright white, even an young eagle's tail (but maybe not this year's eaglet).
this bird is evenly grey. buzzard?? a crow would look darker. this has also very long wings compared to the body length.

Could be that Milda and Raimis are here with me. Here is not hunted at the moment :laugh:
I saw a lot of swans, gulls and cranes. The meadows are flooded, so even swans can swim in the meadows. Unfortunately, I saw a dead otter, killed by a car.

14:45:10 Raimis calls? hard to say ... I listened to it again :unsure:

hi Liz!
have you seen fellows like these there yet? :whistling:
viewtopic.php?p=700127#p700127

the voice that you heard didn't quite sound like a proper eagle's voice. i think it's more likely to be a fake eagle.

ame, today is a rainy day. Eagles do not like rain. :laugh: Tomorrow I do a bike ride to the area where I suspect they are. I hope I'm lucky. Food is enough there. It's swimming in the meadows. Ducks, geese and other waterfowl.

wooow! great picture from the eaglets (your Link) :loveshower:

I think the tail is too long and straight for the eagle.

16:51 Raimis dropped from the top. i think he arrived at 16:47:about 12. i saw something flashing in the corner of my eye then. ... yes, he flew to the top.

Milda flew to the left branch.
Image
At 16:49:22-16:49:34 a large bird was flying in the right corner. The buzzard voice was heard. Maybe a buzzard, maybe Milda flew.

17:24 (nearly 25) Raimis flew out.

...
When your video ends, for almost half a minute Raimis makes all sorts of noises and Milda watches him.

Raimis worked on the nest after Milda left.

...
A little earlier, at 17:32:58 Raimis flew under the nest.

By the way, you can compare the tail to the tail of today's bird. Completely different shape.

7:59 an eagle flew away. i think it had to be Milda. only few seconds before this Raimis looked up. he did the same thing a few seconds after he landed on the nest. i think this means that Milda arrived together with Raimis and stayed on the top for a few minutes.
Image

this event is missing from the video by Liz so here's a video of all of the first visit
7:56 - 8:03


the tawny owls which Liz heard were so far that i didn't make clips of them. we have much better voice samples of them.
