14:23 He is still here. It is not expected that soon comes a parent.
That's the problem. :unsure:
Poor chicks, they are too young to deal with OFAF.

14:05:42 OFAF is on the left
Image

14:21:46 He is still there. More than 15 minutes...
Image

14:23:51 OFAF moves a bit to the right
Image

14:28:15 OFAF is vigorously shaking the big branch. What is he doing? He is making a lot of noise. :shock:

14:28:20 Again! :shock: The chicks are exhausting themselves.

OFAF is still young. He is playing with a branch. Poor little ones. :bow: That costs energy!

I don't know if this is playing, Liz.
It looks as if he wants to impress. :puzzled:

14:24:03 OFAF watches the chicks.

14:24:15 He shakes that big branch vigorously, several times

Gaps in the live stream.
14:33:52 OFAF is gone. What a relief.

14:34 All chicks do a PS. Stress.

Anne I saw it at the Latvian nests. The youths played in the same way with the branches of the oak tree

14:39 here again :bow: Now he is above the nest.

OFAF was visible already 14:02. He flew through the forest and landed on a tree near the nest on the left.

14:04 he flew to the nest and hit a branch .. so he turned back.
He landed below the nest on the left and hissed.

14:02 Arrival and landing on the left

Hello everyone, :wave:
oh dear, what a long lasting stress for the storklets! OFAF was here! :shock:

But the storklets reacted immediately and called „attack“. I‘m astonished they already can do that. Today they are only 17 days old.
It‘s bad that the parents already now let the little ones alone for many hours. It is much too early to do that. But probably otherwise they can‘t catch enough food.

Thanks a lot, Liz, Anne, Balistar, Hellem, Summi and everyone for the reports, pictures and videos! Also for yesterdays cute pictures. :2thumbsup:

Edit:
I've done some pictures.

14:14:12 OFAF observes the nest and the surroundings.
Image

14:14:40 He looks curiously to the storklets. Maybe they are the first baby storks he sees?
Image

14:14:49
Image

It doesn't look to me that OFAF has any bad intention. He is just curious, I think.

perhaps vice versa? perhaps this stork dare to come here again, because the nest is not garded so strictly?

Biker,
He will come too, if the nest is guarded. We saw this every year on some nests. Here too.But if a parent is here, it does not last long.

Hello Biker, probably you're right. And if he had come anyway, as Liz thinks, the parent would have chased him away quickly. Then at least the stress situation for the storklets would not have lasted so long.

:mrgreen: It looked really weird.

I also tried to see what it was.

13:44:12 IT came out like this
Image

13:44:13 All three chicks were pulling on IT.
Image

13:44:14 IT tore and looked like that, then.

Puzzle not solved. :laugh:

:hi:

Anne, when i saw this picture i spontaneously thought waterfawl or a not too young chick of a waterfawl. ??

or a sort of a sorebird (Charadriiformes), snipebird (Scolopacidae) ??

EDIT: Biker, wow, your close-up is fantastic :2thumbsup:

Anne, thanks for the great pictures.

I saw blood on all three beaks from the storklets - I saw it, ater OFAF was gone. it is still blood there.
It could be a bird. It does not have to be a water bird. It can also be a ground breeder. A bird brooding on meadows or forest ground.
