Good evening Emiliano! :2thumbsup:

Yes, lots of morning calls, lots of flapping...an energetic H21 and a mellow H44.


One can also be seen flying in the grove.

13:30 H21 with prolonged tones.

Initially, it sounds like dialogue...like H21 communicating with another Goshawk. (to be heard from '33:19)
His voice sounds brighter, thinner but also begging calls.

13:33:27/28 H21's last call as the second Goshawk continues to call from a distance. (13:53)
At least it sounds far away. But we know it can be deceiving.

H21 is holding back.

Crows are roaming the grounds...
14:11:02 H21 actually still present gives a plaintive sound.

No more - no less

14:20:55 The Goshawk can already be seen in the undergrowth on the horizon, flying low towards the nest tree.

'21:04 again squeaky calling
21:27 ...continue

What is wrong with her?

'23:37 her position changes from the lower level of the tree to the 'meeting point'.
Judging by their movements, H21 eats.
14:43 ...and flying low back into the grove. :innocent:

Good night.

H21 is warning, it looks like a chicken in the area and they are close to the season in which they begin to be or defend their territory.

Greetings and see you tomorrow.

Emiliano, good evening! :2thumbsup:
He keeps cheating on us.
Exactly. And absolutely shameless. :mrgreen:

But he is attached to the genus Corvidae and they convince with intelligence, sophistication and linguistic talent.
Not to forget that they are sometimes merciless aggressive predators.


I recorded this moment last season. The jay relies on absolute confusion here...in pairs on wearing down the patience of the pair of lesser spotted eagles.(Clanga pomarina).

And they showed perseverance and strategy.

Well, at least my nerves were gone after more than an hour!
Even when the male finally returned to the nest, the jays were still close.




Even though the Jay is being hunted by the Goshawk, it has no problem destroying a Goshawk's brood at unwary moments. He has the courage! :nod:

Thanks for your timestamp! :2thumbsup:
In fact, I didn't hear deficits, two moments.

09:09 In this span we have already further removed the voices of a cat and 09:09:30 calls of a goshawk from another position.
Well...Cat or Jay.... :whistling:

10:34 ...after this call the Jay had his playing time in the tree of the big ones again.

11:05 to hear
'11/12 flutters through the branches




12:40:37 One of the couple flies to the meeting point
...there seems to be the plucking place?
'56:55 back to the grove



Sleep well! :innocent:

The jays are "heavy" with the eagle but around here the Dartford (Cyanopica cyanus) is even more so.

In any case, they know in their language and behavior when they can do that and they detect the moments when they notice that the birds of prey (peregrine falcon and goshawk are not going to do anything and can perch quite close to them).

Late in the afternoon it sounds 16:28:47-51

Good night.

Hello Emiliano, @all :hi:

Unfortunately, I haven't had much opportunity to follow the couple in the last few days.
My everyday life is currently at work or on the construction site at home.

Thanks for watching @Emiliano!!!!


10:18 the calls sound close to the nest/in the tree.
(Timestamp from @Emiliano)

Ps: With Handy it is difficult to quote passages when the text uses many colors. Especially since I have the page translated automatically.

I will continue to follow the day now.


10:37, '43 Crows are nagging near the nest tree.
Well, an H will probably still be present. :whistling:
