The events of yesterday have been collected in this video



Osprey          Kalakotkas      Pandion haliaetus 


Goshawk        Kanakull           Accipiter gentilis


A daring move by the young osprey Juuli that was  2 and a half months old only on Sunday . Observing the danger – the approach of the goshawk – the young bird decided to take on the attack but in the air. Juuli’s first flight out of the nest took place only on July 21st.

In the video we see that this is meant to fend off the intruder; the adults Miina and Marko have been doing so around the nest earlier. Anyway courageously done by Juuli and a very suitable decision and conduct for an eagle.

Do we have to do with the same goshawk that attacked the nest on July 18th?
