:hi:

The second chick has not hatched yet in Paltamo - there was some movement though at 17:32 ... - it has been rather chilly and rainy today
Miila was very hungry herself but tried to give some morsels to the hatchling, too. Penna watching.

Ilomantsi nest - the same destiny as last year during a hot period, probably because of dehydration

Tragedy in the Luomus #1 - Satakunta osprey nest

A raven kills a chick, then a fox kills Alma.

It is so much heartbreaking ... I can not believe ...
only one raven, smaller then osprey,
only several minutes and such terrible tragedy :cry:

RiP Alma, great and brave mummy 🌹
RiP sweet little one 🌷
I will never forget you 💗

Soar high Alma and take care for your baby,
there, over the Rainbow Bridge,
free from enemies and with waters full of fish 🐟 🦈
Be like a guardian angel of your nest,
Ossi and your survived babies :shake:

Owlie :wave:

thank you a lot, I know that.
But anywhere they are, I think loving and beloved mummy-guardian angel may come in handy, and also for poor orphaned Ossi to protect him from goshawks, ravens etc. :2thumbsup:
Poor, poor so suddenly alone Ossi is flying and calling, looking for his babies, whom yet yesterday he brought supper ... heartbreaking :( And does he understand that Alma died ... ?
Owlie, do you remember how long they are a pair ? I peek in this nest the 4th year and it always was them.
I would never, ever have thought that a smaller raven could be deadly to adult ospreys and already quite large young ones. Until now I know them as eggs thieves. And my first question is why, what for the raven attacked bigger than he is birds, if he was even not able to take them from the nest and eat ?

I asked today Mod on YT chat and on Luotio forum where they were taken, but they don't have any info yet.
I'd like to know also how is doing this injured juvenile, and also no info.

Owlie, I am very very sorry for the Ilomantsi baby :blush:
How terrible season it is, in so many nests tragedies or misfortunes :(
I hope and wish may the two others grow up for strong and healthy juveniles :2thumbsup:
The same I wish babies in Paltamo !
'Your' birdies, because if I good remember you live just somewhere near this nest, as you wrote in early spring, when the winter suddenly came back there with snow for few days.

And btw., birdy mums sheltering chicks are often funny called mumbrella, and dads, fathers - fatent ;)

:hi: SilverGirl

Alma's and Ossi's nest has been streamed for five years. Two years ago a goshawk took all their chicks, but the raven attack on Alma was a surprise even for the experts. It was really sad. :nod:

An article in Finnish:

In Paltamo everything looks good so far and we have very warm weather for the time being, hopefully there is enough food for hydration of the small ones.

... as well as in Ilomantsi

It is very sad. It turns out ravens can be as dangerous as goshawks. Probably two ospreys could chase a raven away but not Alma alone. :cry: :cry: :cry:

A female unringed osprey visited the nest.

Thank you, Asteria, nice that Ossi has company - maybe a spouse candidate for next season ...
