Starling        Kuldnokk       Sturnus vulgaris

 

The hatching is in progress, several half-hatched  chicks were visible for a moment, regrettably it wasn’t caught on the video.

So we predicted: the first egg was laid on April 22. Often there are five or six eggs in a nest (seven in the nest that we observe). The incubation lasts about twelve days. We expect the hatching of the starling chicks at  around May 10th.
