:hi: mogga, I also saw that the nest seems re-furnished today, thanks for looking into this :laugh:
Yes, Sunshine, there were really lot of branches fetched to the nest. I thought they want to build a skyscraper. :D

Don't worry small chocolate is getting enough. Irma is great Mum and Ivo is providing well. Small choco doesn't need as much because he is smaller.
Indeed, Irma is an excellent mother and Ivo is a caring dad!

I don't know why, but every time Choco gets a morsel from Irma, I start smiling! :D

Here is what Summi and Sunshine talked about.

The whole family was on the nest for quite a long time. Meanwhile Irma twice stepped on the little one. Smallie appeared a little battered. But no injury seemed to result.

Irma is sounding alert already for quite a while.. there is some intruder in the skies.

Image

In the meanwhile, the two youngest have an opportunity to work out their relationship.
At 17:34:20 the youngest started the clash! So yes, it is in their nature, indeed 8-)

17:34
Choco reaches out to attack the Middlie

There was also a non-verbal communication between the two small rivals going on - both were staring at each other and trying to figure out which one is taller :whistling:

17:35:18
I am taller! No, me!

Mogga, thank you for the video :wave:
I really got scared watching it "live" and even shouted to Irma Mind your step, don't back up! as if it would have helped. :unsure:

Both look intensively to the skies, mantle and chirp.

There were flying around two other ospreys for a short time. No problem, no alarm, Irma just looked at them. One appeared in the cam sight.

15 June
:wave: Good Morning Osprey Fans!
7:11. Ivo just brought a beautiful fish to his family! :slap: in good time, too!
The chicks have been up since Ivo’s first visit to the nest at 4:40. He returned a bit later with fresh hay. But since the kids are up, the oldest one, want to bonk the other 2! Irma has covered the chicks a few times, but she wants to preen her feathers so the chicks are up!
Anyway, all is good! Nice breakfast fish!
:D

Hi, Mogga! I just watched your video above and I think that was going on earlier at the nest! I heard the crows, but I don’t think that was what Irma, then Irma and Ivo together were watching a bird(s) in the sky. I couldn’t see anything so I’m not certain.

There was an interesting episode at 06:40 a.m. this morning.

The small one tried to challenge the Oldie. The little choco was biting the oldest 3 times, and the oldest did not react back. The latter has nerves of steel! :shock:
At the fourth attempt, when the small one bit in his chest feathers and started shaking them, the eldest's patience was over :whistling:

Image

At 07:01 the same thing was tried by the Middlie. He/she stood up and bit the eldest two times. And again the Oldie did not hit back!

Image

So yes, this spirit of competition is in them, no matter, if they are the youngest or the eldest 8-)

At 07:11 Ivo brought a large, alive fish

Image

At 11:44 he brought another large one

By the way, have you noticed that the crow mobbing has subsided? Their young are now out of the nests and they don't really attack the ospreys anymore so much. :rolleyes:

Yes, Cessie, what you describe was earlier, I don't remember when exactly. But this happened at 22:03 / 22:04. I think there were three birds in the sky. Chasing each other, something like that. At least one of them was an osprey, anyway for me it looked so. Irma didn't react very much. Just watching it.

Here is the whole scene again, 22:04:

Not to alarm anyone, but does Middle's bum look a bit too pink? 15:36 -- chick on the left (facing the nest)
