It's good to see Vita & Teo through the day. Without hurry .... Thanks for that! :2thumbsup:
As much as we write and smile about Vita's dominance - it will be very helpful at some point.
I'm still very flashed about Vita's change. From screamer to tough woman. Vita has a fighting spirit. :thumbs:

Thanks Polly. The nest is worth it.
Thank you Olga for this wonderful video. I love this setting at 12.20. So cute. :loveshower:

Vita and Teo have found a good relationship. An ideal basis for rearing their offspring.

11:13 Vita wasn't enthusiastic.

15:06 It's raining.

21:24 Vita in the evening sun.

22:11 She is a little bit restless. Is she disturbed by the flies or does she feel that the first chick will soon be on its way? Wish her a good night.

May 27
:hi: Good morning everyone!
10:47
The wait for the eggs to hatch is not so distant. Yay! :shake:
1st egg April 24th, 2nd egg April 28th, 3rg egg
I am curious if Vita’s, 1st egg will hatch :puzzled: , it wasn’t incubated that well, in the beginning. It might hatch late and possibly near the second egg hatch day.

Deli, :thumbs:

Day 34 since first egg was laid.

Hi Cessie! :wave:

I imagine a hole in one of the eggs.
But it's not really a hole... a reflection of light.

Tinas first egg in 2017 was laid April 27 and hatching day was June 5.
So June 2 would be comparable. Nevertheless, I hope first chick will hatch faster. :mrgreen:

She is a little bit restless.
A bird egg cannot be compared to a baby in the stomach, but does it send movements? Loud days before hatching? Vita may feel something. :innocent:

May 29th

Good morning :hi:

Check check ... it is brooding diligently. :D All eggs are still intact.

Early breakfast for Vita.
04:17 Teo brings a headless fish to his partner's bed.
Image
Vita gladly accepts it and flies it out of the nest

05:46 Teo has been in the nest so far. He is tired.
Image

All around beautiful twittering ... ... and a delicate whine from above. :laugh:

There she is. :innocent:
05:47
Image

Quiet, mutually friendly change and Teo leaves the nest.

06:45 It is just like in a fairytale forest. The cuckoo is now calling very close and in the middle of the beautiful background noise croaking frogs.

06:54 Teo is back.
Image

He brings a stick and puts it down first. Vita seems to be very happy about the change. She gets up from the eggs and leaves the nest just a minute later.

And Teo designs the nest according to his own ideas. He took the grass along yesterday.
He seems to like it.

Lunch - Check

Business as usual. :innocent:

12:42 Teo lands in the nest with a piece of bark.
12:43 Vita begins to chirp at Teo...almost inaudibly.
She should raise her voice because Teo seems to be dreaming.
Image

He woke up...
Image

...didn't get his attention at Vita. :laugh:

12:47 Vita chirps more energetically, gets up and leaves the nest.

View of the eggs ...
(And Teo's hairstyle. :whistling: )

Hi Polly
thanks for your work.
Teo does his nesting work undeterred. He knows pretty well that the time will come soon - much more to do. :bounce:

Hi san b
that's nice to read, thank you! :wave:

Good evening :hi:
Unfortunately I am far too little active here but thanks anyway.

Also to the night there is no change.
As long as Vita still voluntarily leaves the nest as he did today, I do not expect a chick to hatch.
I'm sure it will take some more patience. A few days .... :shake:

21:20

22:46 Vita chirps.
Unfortunately Teo does not follow her calls.
Vita would not voluntarily leave her eggs alone. So she goes into the night without a short break.
Hm. :unsure:

May 30th


Hello everybody :hi:

04:40 Vita covers the eggs and chirps softly.
Morning dew covers their feathers.
An Osprey flies from the camera... Teo. Vita looks at him irritated.
Image

05:08:11 the first challenge of the day - Vita leaves the nest in alarm. Her calls can be heard near the nest.
This allows us a look at the eggs.
Check check...all whole. All?
Image

I feel like a lot of us. With a vivid imagination, I see a hole. :laugh: The colouring of the eggs makes it difficult and leaves much room for interpretation.

05:09 she lands back on the camera and returns directly to the nest.
05:35 Finally breakfast!
Teo lands in front of the camera lens and covers the view of the fish. But ... then yes.

I'm not sure. I am still missing the egg tooth in the hole.

14:29 Poor Teo. Same procedure as every year. Strong wind and...

Deli :hi:

:rotf: yes, the wind is very nasty again today.
Maybe it is a subjective feeling but in the last months the wind has increased. Not only in many nests in different regions but also at home we have more stormy phases.
I hope that the chicks (in all nests) will not fall victim to the strong wind. It would not be the first time. :unsure:

There was another fish for Vita.
15:51
Image

Here too Teo almost flew on the eggs. He crawled up the side and tried to keep balance with his wings.

I wouldn't mind if it was a false alarm. I have to go to work now and I'd hate to miss a hatching . :D

May 31st
Good Morning Everyone
:wave: Polly & Deli
7:33
Today is day 37
Vita, is settled on the eggs, right now, but she has been checking the eggs and moving around. I don’t hear any chirping, but I think that Vita, is acting like something is going on. :D
