Osis brought a fish abt 19.25 :D and Cilla came too and fed Boss.
BUT Knips does not move at all !
- Knips slept all the time and therefore didn't get anything.
I even thought if the kid is alive :shock: , but yes Knips is moving again, later. :nod:
Both parents are gone 19.40.
19.45 Cilla (I think) came back with a big nice spruce branch!
Sylvika, for a moment I thought the same but saw him breathing :faint:

Although Boss ate the whole garfish alone, s/he later bonked Knips down very badly.
Her (?) instincts of first-born behavior are very pronounced.

Ou yeee, everything goes on... At 8.30 pm a nice fish flew in by Osis :D
and ofcourse Boss got the most and now he was really bad towards Knips,
which is someting like being very jealous and yes it comes from instincts.
But Knips struggled pretty well although the Hammer-Boss was there again!
Knips got to eat anyway and that's forward over night, right. :nod:

Thanks, Sylvika, for reporting. Yes, that's the important thing, that Knips got a few bites at all. Today nothing more will be brought and tomorrow morning Boss is hungry again and the same procedure will occur.... :unsure:

:hi: Sylvika,
thanks for your morning report.
Today was a very good day. When I counted right, there were 4 fishes and a black duck brought. Enough to eat, so that both had very big crops and I saw no bonking at all the whole day. Happy eaglets and happy parents (and happy viewers :laugh: ).

The small Knips has gained strength and self-confidence and twice bravely faced the Boss. :D

:innocent: Thanks, balistar, again for so so nice pictures with texts!
It has gone really well, let's relax, no more that 'awful' as it has been. :D
- Today I've been on camera every now and then in the morning - at noon and
everything again has gone fine. Osis brought a bird for later morning meal
plus he also brought long shaped fish around 12.
Both kids have got enough food! Looks like Boss has grown in the way that he notices no use about bonking Knips. Boss has been calm instead. It's easier now too, because no lack of food, vice versa... When they now got a new fish they cannot eat at all! Cilla is standing there useless, need not feed the kids, they do not want to eat, they sleep :sleeping:. The long-fish have to wait before getting into kid's crops.

" :help: " At 12.50 a long fish flew into the nest AGAIN by Osis ! Now two fishes waiting for the kids to awake ! Both parents standing there and the kids are only sleeping !!

May, 18

:hi: Sylvika,
today I watched, too, from early morning until 13:47 Uhr Osis has brought:
1 duck (black and white) at 09:54
3 long garpikes ( at 12:15, 12:49, 13:47 ) :laugh:

For the last garpike it took him only 16 min, from flying off the nest to the sea, catch the fish (a really big, long one) and flying back and drop it to nest. 16 min. !! :2thumbsup:
He can really be proud of himself - and Cilla, too.

But most of the time she forces him out of the nest as soon as he delivers the food.
She uses her beak :shock: Poor Osis. After the last garpike he perched on a branch near nest and watched his family. He wanted to stay for a while with them, but she didn't allow him to stay in the nest. Like the dogs: "We must keep out." :bow:

Yes, what a good day for this cute eagle family!
You balistar wrote: "After the last garpike he perched on a branch near nest and watched his family. He wanted to stay for a while with them, but she didn't allow him to stay in the nest." :sad:
- I also feel sad when seeing that Mother of Boss is a boss towards Osis!
But today around 12.45 I am not sure...?? I think it was Cilla who went to the branch and stayed there? At first they had fight and Osis then flew to left branch near, but then at once came back to Cilla and demanded the place for himself, and got it. Osis was standing near the kids and would have liked to feed them, but those were too full. Cilla was looking from branch?
- Anyway, many times I also have noticed that Osis would like to stay and feed, but Cilla does not let him! :whistling:

16 min. !! :2thumbsup:
You didn't watch the Estonian nest in 2016. It was almost matter of seconds to deliver one fish, go back to the sea and come with the next one. :-)

14:13 Cilla brought a spruce branch, a minute later Osis came with a rolled up garfish (?). Cilla started whining again and kept doing so for minutes until she flew away. I don't understand what the meaning is. Encouragement or disapproval...

Image

Osis starts eating and feeding the kids.

:hi: Sylvika,
yes, that may be possible, the two are very difficult for me to distinguish. I had mistaken the two before :blush: . Unfortunately, I can not rewind now. But anyway, Cilla is also boss of the nest and Osis's job is to bring food - and I think it makes him more and more joy the more catches he makes. :D
If he is allowed to feed then he will be really happy. :headroll:

I'm sorry, I didn't post pictures yesterday, I've taken a lot, but I was too tired. I'll try to put some in later in my last post (at least 3 are allowed).

Hi BigDee,
no, unfortunately I didn't watch that Estonian nest in 2016. "seconds" ? I guess, that nest must have been right by the sea ? :laugh:

As I've been told, this Latvian nest is a bit far from the sea and I believe, Osis is doing a really good job :thumbs: :shake:
