:hi: Liz, thanks a lot for all your documentation here :2thumbsup: . I read it every day.

Gaja and Kaupo are a beautiful couple with beautiful names! And yes, they are very quick with 3 eggs already. I very much hope that all is (more or less) settled now :bow: .

I am happy for the information about Ozol´s nest. Thanks.

:wave:

12:43 Gaja went back into the nest
12:50 Mating
12:57 Kaupo flew away

Compared to Ozol's nest 2015-2016, they spend a lot of time with each other.
I think that the food situation is here much better.
