and now theyr are mating at 7:55! :laugh:
:loveshower:


here a complete Pontu video: http://youtu.be/fCTTD2IKfGs

it seems to be their regular routine: first some homework together and then out of the nest to make love. :laugh:

yes, the ringed bird is the male. Mrs E has no rings.

in only one Pontu picture the raven can be seen, at 7:11. the male was at the nest for 31 min and most of the time raven were cawing to him.
Image

in the video one raven flies by the camera twice at 7:11. i made a gif of those snapshots where a (blurry unfocused) raven can be seen plus a few pictures of Mr E between them.
Image
Mr E looks a bit like audience in a tennismatch
(this also reminds me of one of my favourite gifs http://makeagif.com/i/SLgKA4 :mrgreen: )

the whole raven episode can be seen in these three Pontu clips:

at 8:10 eagles sing together in the forest.

8:37 an eagle came home... and my picture turned into a multicoloured mosaic. :slap:
well, mostly in the grey scale. :mrgreen:
Image

it was the male. he stayed about a minute and took off.
Image

in the Pontu video it can be seen that he brought some hay with hay.

9:57 the male came in. he is working with a long stick so maybe he brought that.
Image

a raven followed him and is talking ugly to him. again he is not pleased with the raven.
Image

a Pontu clip:


Liz, they do it with their thick feather over-alls on. :mrgreen:
besides love warms them. :rolleyes:

there was also a hooded crow calling at the male.
then even a snowpile collapsing down from a treetrunk startled him. :D
- the weather is getting warmer: snow is melting. :thumbs:


then he began working... but mostly looking out.
10:05 he flew away.
Image

here's all his visit (except the arrival)

11:04 the male brought hay to the nest.
Image

or was it a stick? before he arrived i heard a loud SNAP! from the forest. :puzzled:
yes, i think it was a twig. he began to look for a place for it.

11:07 he flew away (the original picture was a bit blurry so i took a snapshot from the Pontu video and put it here).
Image


i have replaced my blurry live recording with a Pontu clip.

The only problem I have with the picture is that it makes sick if you watch longer :rotf:

I think it is Mrs E now, looking around, arranging the twigs ... and maybe expecting an egg? Would be so nice!

12:01 i think it is Mrs E and it is her who is making soft beeping voices. (but my sound is missing most of the time... one video turned out to be all black, just some beeping. :slap: )

12:03 the male is in the nest too.
Image

Edit: my videos are so poor so i've replaced them with Pontu clips.
when i wathced them later i saw that the male did bring some food to the female. the food looked like a half eaten fish: head and stomach seem to be missing but the fleshy back of the fish was left. "only the best parts, the filets for my beloved" :rolleyes: .
the female saw Mr E from far and began to beep excitedly a long time before he came in.

here's the only snapshot from the Pontu video where the lunch can be seen.

Yes, now I can see, she is eating! :laugh:

aha, that would make sense. it's difficult for me to see... so she is singing happily while she's eating.
suddenly my picture stabilized!
12:07 Mr E jumps to back branch.
Image

... and he flew out at 12:08.

12:09 the male brings a big stick.
Image
his left "little finger" is pointing up in such a sophisticated way. :mrgreen:

two Pontu clips (instead of my own stop&go live recording):

well-well, it seems there is something to wait... hopeful thinking maybe, but?

I'm working and hold open the cam, but did not hear when female appeared in nest, just once she is sitting there. And now there is brought by male something to eat. Very familiar from last year behavior in Saunja nest.

the female took off, just disappeared without a track in the video between 12:18 and 12:19.
Image

my picture is a slowmotion... then the male disappeared from the nest 12:20.
EDIT: my videos were so sticky so i removed then and placed instead clips made of the Pontu archive video.

... SNAP! from the forest...

... and he is back! :D
