I have the feeling, somehow, that they are close to the nest already.

You think because of the so far very mild winter? Would make it easy to have a good start!

I also hope we will meet Linda & Sulev again next season.
While we wait we can enjoy a picture of a WTE, posted in a norwegian bird forum:

The Saga of the White-tailed Eagle
Viasat Nature/Crime Perjantai 3.2. klo 11:00
Once widespread throughout Europe, the sea eagle is now sadly nearly driven to the brink of extinction. This touching program focuses on the true life story of one bird, over the course of a year. Capturing its birth in a European forest, a team tracks the eagle’s first family outing and its migration all the way to Norway in Scandinavia. The cameras also close in on the bird’s dramatic lead poisoning and recovery back to health, before documenting its settlement into a nature reserve. Pituus: 60 min.

I´m glad to see this nest again, thanks for the picture, fireblade.

And a lot of thanks to Urmas and all those who make this possible!
:bow: Image

I asked Urmas if there are any news about Linda and Sulev or other eagles in the nest area. He said as yet they observed no visible marks of nest owners, only a couple of eagles feathers on a tree nearby.

:headroll: The cam is on again! I keep my fingers crossed that Linda and Sulev will use this nest again this year! :bow:

Thanks to Urmas and his helpers!

the old reliable camera clicked on in the morning at 8.26. i think Urmas and Renno and others are testing the system. i think the camera must have been up there in the tree all the time as this is exactly the same view as in the summer. i guess that also the solar panel and battery and transmission antenna must have been in the forest all the time...

I just woke for a bit & checked the Decorah eagle cam. :loveshower: The American bald eagle mother laid her first egg on 17 Feb 2012 at about local time 19:47 (7:47 pm). There is a very good video of the entire laying porcess showing that she goes through labor not unlike the labor mammals endure to give birth. The video is long, nearly 22 minutes, but quite interesting. The first part shows how restless she is, then she begins peeping sounds & it is almost like hearing a sparrow cheep-cheeping. Then she stands & at about point 7:08 on the video she drops the egg. She remains standing protectively over the egg while the shell hardens, & finally rearranges herself to roll it under herself (you can see it clearly) & cuddles it to keep it warm. Here is the URL if anyone wants to see (I probably should not post the actual video here as it belongs to someone else):

And the good news, too, is that this WTE cam has started up again. Yay! We will see baby eagles perhaps in both places! (Now I go back to bed. :whistling: )

Thanks, Ame! I especially liked this picture, it is as if Sulev is saying, "What, you don't have it out, yet? Stop doing headstands & push it out!" :rotf:

i took a video and a snapshot, too, even though nothing is changed since yesterday, except that snow has melted a little since yesterday even though it's snowing. the L is more clear now than yesterday i think.
