We also see male Klaus

 

Tawny owl     Kodukakk      Strix aluco

 

In the video we can hear the voices of the adults, how male Klaus lets Klaara know that she might come to have an evening meal. After some time he himself comes to the nest with a rodent which he offers to Klaara  but then decides to check in the nest hollow whether the hatching of the owl chicks is in progress  since Klaara did not leave the nest on being called. …

Black stork         Must-toonekurg       Ciconia nigra

 

Female Kati has laid eggs with clockwork  regularity and we have been able to greet all the eggs in the morning dusk: on April 12th, 14th, 16th and 18th.

In the nice calm full-moon-time nest forest there were minus degrees in the night but spring proceeds and after noon there may be more than 15 degrees of warmth.

The third egg is a fact

 

Black stork      Must-toonekurg      Ciconia nigra

 

Three  nice eggs in the nest and a proud stork pair. The eggs came every second day, or on April 12th, 14th and 16th in the morning twilight.

This night too there were minus degrees in the nest forest as it has been since the beginning of the egg-laying, but the weather is turning more spring-like.

Early morning at black stork nest

 

Black stork          Must-toonekurg         Ciconia nigra

Just as with the first egg this one was discovered in the nest early in the morning dusk.

The night was not as cold as when the first egg was laid but there were still some degrees of frost.

Thus female Kati laid  the eggs on April 12th and 14th.
