The older GSE chick is a week old; its instincts make it harass the three days younger hatchling. About Cainism in greater spotted eagle nests we have already written.

In April Tiiu laid two eggs, the first one on April 23 and the next on April 27. The incubation time until the hatching of the first chick on June 2 was forty days and for the second chick, hatched on June 5, one day less.  Ornithologists know that greater spotted eagles start incubating as soon as the first egg has been laid,

The nest life of the greater spotted eagles started already on April 23 when Tiiu laid the first egg. Laying another egg takes time for the large birds and we saw it in the nest on April 27.

The nest in Hiiumaa was found by Renno Nellis in the last week of May when there was one egg. At the time of camera installation there were two eggs in the nest, white and flecked in grey and brown; this is the usual size of a nightjar clutch.
