every now and then he is looking in the sky.. still waiting for Grafiene? Male could be Grafs or ..
and even if we recognize Grafiene, that doesn't mean that there are Grafs in the nest.

stretching out wing and leg :laugh:

he flew away !
Image

hopefully back with a female :whistling:

14:50 not a female, but nesting material :laugh:
