10:14 an eagle flew to the meadow and landed the under the poop branch.
(i'll make a close-up later)
https://youtu.be/y9KoznXiIMM

10:15 the eagle took off from the meadow. ... and Raimis brought a big bunch of hay. he worked on the nest.


edit: this turned out to be more complicated than it first seemed.
at about 10:14:40 an eagle flew from right to left over the pond and vanished.
10:15:35 an eagle took off from the meadow under the poop branch. that was Raimis who brought hay. i could not see when he landed there. it is possible that Milda flew first and continued away over the pond and then Raimis came to pick hay. or there was only Raimis who flew over the pond, turned back and landed on the meadow to pick hay.
i simply cannot see. :faint:


10:17 Milda came empty-handed. they worked together. then Milda went upstairs.


10:19 Raimis went to the left branch.

10:24 Milda flew out over the meadow. i think she landed there under the poop branch, above the top of the spruce.
(i'll make a close-up later)

10:26 she seemed to fly from there or change place. there was also a bird's voice which sounded like the jay-eagle. Raimis was looking there.

10:33 Raimis worked a little. then he ruffled his feathers.
Image



i have noticed that he does that every time after mating. one would think that Milda's feathers would get unorganized in mating but no, it's always Raimis whose feathers get mixed up. :mrgreen:

Milda didn't take him seriously at all so he jumped to the right branch and began to tear it. :mrgreen:

Raimis stood mostly idle on the right branch. he didn't really know what to do after Milda left.
11:14 Raimis flew away.

i may have heard voices... :whistling: every now and then, like the jay-eagle in the forest. Raimis is perhaps listening to that voice, too, or maybe not. it's hard to tell. :puzzled:

14:12:40 a small flock of swans (about 6) flew to the right. :D


i made a close up clip of them. white birds are so difficult to see against the grey sky. :slap:

two young eagles visited! first a girl perhaps
Image

...followed by a very submissive eagle, who seemed to have thinner ankles than the first. he knelt down almost on his face in front of the girl. :laugh:
Image

both flew away but the other flew to the top of the spruce on the right.
no, both flew to tree tops on the right. the girl flew to a tree near the tip of the poop branch and the boy flew to the spruce on the right.
