All youngsters in the nest


Osprey        Kalakotkas        Pandion haliaetus 


The young birds that have turned two months old are busy and sometimes romp around each according to its own character. The adults have managed the feeding of the young birds successfully. Let us hope that the last month will pass likewise without mishaps.

The other juvenile can already be seen in the "perching tree“


Osprey         Kalakotkas       Pandion haliaetus 


This morning a few minutes past eleven o’clock the last young bird in the nest set out to fly. There was no room for landing beside the sibling on the perching tree. So it was a ”sensible” decision to return to the nest after the flying tours.

The young ospreys in the Osprey 2 nest will be two months old in the beginning of August.

An anniversary cannot be neglected

The image from Osprey camera 2 disappeared the day before yesterday during the heavy rain. Hopefully the equipment will be restored within a few days

The chicks, hatched on June 4, 5 and 7, will be one month old today calculating with an average of the hatching dates.

Female Miina leaves the nest with an alarm call to drive off the invader

Northern  goshawk       Kanakull          Accipiter gentilis


Immediately before three o’clock it was raining and female Miina covered her nestlings. A minute before three o’clock just as the rain decreased the goshawk attack took place; attentive forum members recorded it.

The same goshawk has very likely been flying past the nest earlier so that it knew the layout and could plan the attack. Miina has left the nest earlier too with alarm calls but the cause of danger has been too far away or outside the camera’s field of view.
