7:39 Andris is back with a complicated branch
7:41 Anna back with a twig - Andris flew away
7:43 andris landed on the front branch and came on with a twig
Anna flew away. Andris is digging in the nest bowl
7:45 Andris flew away too

I urgently need to look for distinguishing marks. There is no time for that at the moment. I do it when they fly for breakfast
If it is Andris, it could be, then he has changed his plumage colors. That's normal, he's getting older. Unfortunately, he now looks a lot like Anna

Andris identifiers for me

1) lanky legs when viewed from the front side in comparison to other LSE's. less feathers obscuring upper legs on the front.

2) i can tell it was him from his more rounded sound of vocals. less screeching sound, more softer meeping.

feather pattern wise not much. his right wing is always very low below tail when he has it tucked, but i've seen others do this.

Both have long legs. This is because of their hunting method. They run after their prey.
They have different voices, but they don't talk much .. later this is not helpful. I'm looking for differences in the plumage
It is definitely not Andris 2020 .. I suspect it is Andris 2019.
I'm still once sure if it's Anna. It requires a lot of pictures and comparison of their feather patterns
For these comparisons I would like to see them when there is better light on the nest.
Right now I can tell them apart. But as I said, not sure whether Anna and Andris..

12:30 Andris came in from the right with a twig
12:32 he is still calling..
Andris flew away
12:35 Anna came home
12:40 she is preening herself

12:47 she flew away

From the feather pattern, both look incredibly similar.

Anna had 2 lovers last year. I'm almost certain that Andris 2020 raised the chick from Andris' 2019 :mrgreen:
