Indeed. But the more you worry the happier you become when the crisis is over - at least I am firmly addicted to these birds ...

are both getting fed? the other looks so weak... :unsure:


edit: the little one in the front has got at least some morsels of food (and some pecks on the neck by the bigger in the back).

Both being fed. Both lively too, and I just saw the smallest one even peck at the other.

i've got the video of Sartas' return.


i saw how the smaller got some pieces, too. - Liz, these birds follow eagle rules rules, not human rules nor moralities.

after feeding chicks had a round of wrestling.

finally i could go to loo and get to drink something... :mrgreen:

Ame, I know that I know it by Eha and Koit-is hard to see that. But I understand and respect it :nod:

It looked like Sartas was just jumping down from a branch just above the camera up in the left corner

How astonishing! And later the buzzard chicks had to visit a psychologist because of a severe identity crisis? :mrgreen:

Most birds (animals?) seem to have an age hierarchy - but WTEs do not practice cainism as LSEs, do they?

no, no cainish with the WTEs, not even much sibling rivalry. it's a phase which passes in two or three weeks. after that they'll of course compete of food but the pecking and wrestling stops. they'll just attack on the same piece of food and try to crab it.

i can't remember about the article about the buzzlings in the Eagle nest... did they get rings, too? i'll try to see if i can find it somewhere. - i just imagine the face of the guy who climbed up to that nest and found adopted chicks there. :rotf:

edit: i found it. the picture is on page 3 of this article:
http://www.landesmuseum.at/pdf_frei_rem ... 5-0095.pdf
unfortunately in the text there is no further explanation. there's on the figure caption. probably no-one knows what came of these buzzlings later. probably lunch for the eaglet(s).

Nope, WTEs do not practice cainism or siblicide as far as I know.

Those buzzards should thus be good friends with those eagles (if the parent buzzards survived ofcourse) - as cockoos are supposed to be ...
