20:27 Ansis flew to the nest, followed by a nasty raven. a little later came Egle. they did some home work together and then Ansis got the idea of mating, again with poor results. Egle was very displeased. :mrgreen:
this time Ansis was again trying to reach under her wing but to me it seemed that he didn't manage even that. :mrgreen:
Sappheira already posted a video of this unfortunate mating attempt but this is their whole stay.


thank you Sappheira! :wave:

they left at 20:34, Ansis first, then Egle about 20 s later.

Ame , I knew you won't miss this part "trying to reach under her wing". :rotf:

After this "mating", I thought that perhaps their different sizes causes it. She is much stronger than the little hubby, he cannot control her :mrgreen:

He not only came under her wing, he also tried to crawl under her.
It was a strange event, very funny. :rotf:

i made Pontu clips of their arrival. they both called with ravens. here the eagles have disagreements with ravens and at the Estonian nest the crows are unpleasant neighbours for Anna and Uku.
12:33 Ansis landed.
