The intruder had rings!

I think I could read OFAF (or maybe OPAF) on the big white ring.

When the stranger stepped from the curved branch into the nest, Kati grabbed him by the neck and threw him out!
Then, he tried to land on the nest at the left side. Kati pushed him out.

I'm not at home. I can't post a picture. :slap:

Thanks a lot Mary Jane and Summi! :thumbs:

:hi: Anne!
I went back to YouTube archive and made a longer video of the incident. I think you are right, the ring looks like OFAF.

It was rater a female than a male.

EDIT: After watching the video:
I have to corrected me.. it was probably a male. He is looking for a female. Kaupo definitely was not! :mrgreen:

He sang by the arrival and he sang in the forest near the nest. I think it was a love song :whistling:

Here is the video until the time he sings for her. Arrival 14:28 - then he sang 14:30 -14:32

Sorry to be so far off topic, but how do you get to the better quality archive material? It was my first time trying to capture video today - YT seemed to be the quickest way to go -, so I am as dumb as can be. :nod:
