Thank you, Sova :thumbs:


Her wing is injured. That may be the reason why she don't like mating. Maybe it happened during a mating? :mrgreen:

Her eye is ok now. And she has a full crop :2thumbsup: :laugh:

Liz, If it's injured - you might be right.

This morning I saw how she tried to lift the wing against him.

She had this injury already yesterday morning. It is the tip of her wing. But she can still fly. Could also have happened during a fight. Or a collision with a windmill...

I'm happy that she has a full crop, she is able to hunt/fish, despite a droopy and painful wing!
Hopefully it will cure completely!
Good night!
:wave:

Edit: since all the visible problems (eye, wing, tail) are on the same side of her body, it could be that she hit something in flight. Yes, maybe a collision, I think. :puzzled:

good morning!
7:59 for a moment i thought i heard a heard eagles calling but it was a black woodpecker after all ( i think).

no! it was a grey-headed woodpecker, not a black woodpecker. :slap:
i recognized it when it kept calling and came closer.

i was right on the first time: there was a black woodpecker calling at 7:59 :laugh:
(unless it was an eagle).


8:08 a grey-headed woodpecker called.

aha, the young couple has returned. :D
8:43 both called after landing. i think they were followed by ravens and called at them. i heard some raven's voices.


some clips where their tails can be seen.
8:47 the girl went to the branch.


8:58 there was also the animal who calls rho-rho-rhoh! 8-)
(i think it's a fox but who can tell?)

Good Morning!

It's nice to open the day with a couple on the nest :thumbs:

This morning we opened cam very early on the phone, with high volume.

Before their arrival, around 06:21-22 , we heard noises/movements of a bird on the nest tree.

thanks Abigyl!
i think the sounds that you heard were one of the eagles rustling feathers and preening.


probably the female was on the nest tree because she seemed only to jump to the nest later. the male seemed to fly from outside the nest at 6:30.
i'm not quite convinced that the mating was successful. the girl didn't seem to lift her tail properly. :puzzled:


6:38 the male flew out and the girl followed. they didn't fly far because one can hear them talking in rather soft voices for quite a long time after their departure.

thanks Liz! i corrected the link. one / too much and it was invalid.

a jay was also in my mind. there are a lot of jays in this forest but i don't think i've heard any this morning.

it must be a parrot. :mrgreen:
we even "saw" a parrot here once. let me see if i can find it....
here:
viewtopic.php?p=417497#p417497

i checked my recording before the strange bird voice. there were some voices which sounded like a buzzard but perhaps were jay's voices.
here's about minute more than in the previous sample.

I also heard a (real) Buzzard and a Black woodpecker.
It certainly was no Rose-ringed parakeet.
