at last i have finished making videos this morning. i should save so much work if i got up earlier than the eagles like Liz. :mrgreen:

6:44 an eagle flew by the nest from the left to right.
... then Raimis came in with a stick. well done Raimis!


6:46 it began to rain and Raimis went to the left balcony.


it rained hard for a long time...

7:14 the hard rain was over and Raimis jumped back to the nest. .. and Milda flew to the top and startled Raimis. he saw her but we didn't. 8-)


7:25 Milda flew away from the top and Raimis followed.

8:03 back again after a pause of few minutes.


8:06 still BB's. - i didn't make video of every appearance, although many of them. :rolleyes:


9:50 a small flock of great tits. one of them had to peek in the camera. :mrgreen:


MĀRIS and mega2 have made pictures of these visitors. thank you! :wave:

roosaluristaja confirms (as much as it can be done based on the picture material that we have) there my identification of the stripy bird yesterday morning: it was probably yellow hammer.

12:25 loud roaring voice from the forest. a boar probably.

It's good to read hear that she was on the top tree :thumbs:
i think that the rain got between them. Milda wanted to remain dry this time and let Raimis soak on the branch. :mrgreen:
she flew tothe tree only after the rain had stopped.

12:30 a big grey bird flew by. i think it was a grey heron.
Image

it may have been a crane, too. it was difficult to get clear enough pictures. in one frame the neck looked extended and in the next it looked bent. :puzzled:
Image

i think it was a grey heron anyway. a little later a grey heron called nearby. (that's not on the clip).

this is far out and so much off-topic but i can't resist... :whistling:
here's a sentence from the newsletter of the Estonian ornithological society:
"... Talgute lõpus toimub ühine EuroBirdwatch 2017, mille käigus pannakse kirja kõik kohatud linnuliigid. ..."
for the translation of this sentence the gmail's translator, i.e. Google Translator gives:
"At the end of the massacres carried out joint EuroBirdwatch 2017, which put down all the species of bird."
massacres?!? :shock:
put down all bird species!?? :shock:
... i don't think so... :rotf:
i think the letter tries to tell that they'll make a summary of bird species which were observed. :whistling:

i checked the morning videos and saw that some sticks had moved. the wind was especially hard after 8 am.
8:25 one stick started to shake in the wind.


8:27 more shaking...


these breezes were nothing compared to the GUST that hit the nest at 8:58. it blew some sticks out of the nest. :slap:
Raimis and Milda will have to learn to build much better than this. :unsure:

8:56 the woodpecker was a female greater spotted: no red on the head.
Image

i made close-up clips of both.


9:01 it was a juvenile WP: the whole top of the head was red. also the white areas on their backs looked a bit different. the female had larger and more uniform white than the juvenile.

9:24 a grey little bird visited. i don't think it was either chiffchaff nor willow warbler. they are greener and smaller i think. this little bird was unfortunately quiet... or maybe in the end she said tik-tik but i'm not sure that it was she who said it. :help:
this is the normal view video of the bird.


and this is a close-up clip of the visit.

9:28 a nuthatch, a great tit and a blue tit. actually at least two blue tits and who knows how many altogether.
the nuthatch usually announces her arrival loud. :laugh:
the nuthatch took an acorn.
