yes, the tips of the wings of the later bird have 'fingers' like in eagle's wings.

Biker's pictures are in reverse time order: the bird who flew high against the sky flew after the stripy bird (the sparrowgoshawk) had flown down closer to the camera on right.
11:34 the arrival of the hawk.
this looks so big that i think it might be a genuine goshawk. this is about the same size as ravens are. that's the size range of goshawks, larger than crows.
Image

11:40 the departure of the hawk.
Image

20 s later the big bird flew by.
a goshawk would not like to meet an eagle i think.

thank you Biker for the picture!
yours is much clearer than mine.
maybe Potplayer does not record best possible resolution. my pictures are often blurrier than those of others. i have to see if i can improve it. :puzzled:

Someone has flown by from right to left at 17:39...
i almost forgot this, sorry! :slap:
it's very difficult to see what bird it was. in the first picture (on the right) the profile looks like an eagle. in the second (the later picture on the left) it looks like a raven. :D
Image

in the video one can see that the bird flies across the field of view rather fast. this indicates that the bird was rather close to the camera and thus not a very big bird. i guess it was a raven.

18:16:09 an eagle or eaglet flies from the left to the tree top
Image
EDIT: it was a raven, no eagle.

I didn't see him flying off,
but at ~ 18:16:40 i saw an eagle or morst likely an eaglet (the tail was not fully white) flying in the area of the spruce at the right side. Unfortunately i couldn't take a sharp picture.
EDIT: also this one was a raven, no eagle.


18:29:03 one raven flies past
18:29:07 two raven flying past
(i corrected the time, it was not 18:29:10)

It was not a goshawk - It was a buzzard ... Info DD Forum.

My conclusion is that from 18:16 to 18:18 several Raven have flown around here.

I saw it a bit ealier. It was 18:16- not 16:16!

EDIT:As far as I know, the raven carries his food in his beak and not in his claws :puzzled:
I have to take a look to this bird again. It is a raven!
