Hello everyone and nice that you continue to document. :innocent:

It gets quieter in the nest .... Well, the Goshawk family was very present today.
From 09:14 to 09:43, the begging calls from teenagers were heard.
09:41 one of the little ones seems to be very close to the nest. In my guess there are two. One high and one lower voice. Similar to the children in Boka's Nest. (Riga)

I was wondering why we never heard the parents' communication? Or is their nest completely out of earshot? :puzzled: Earlier? We have all watched many hours a day since spring.
That would mean that the young hawks are already flying very far from the nest. It also means that there are other descendants. No safe future for the Ospreys.

10:20:38 You can hear a crack. Then male voices follow. The crack in the undergrowth continues ... a woman and children can be heard. I find it annoying. And Teo and Vita weren't there until then. (Or?)

13:40 Again you can hear the hawks ....

What is going on is incredible right now. :unsure:
Not a fight but an invisible defense of the area, the children ... the tension is in the air. Fascinating the last few minutes. And a little worrying for me because Mama Goshawk is now very close to the nest of one of her teenagers.

I cannot follow this with screenshots and describing it is confusing. I'm posting two videos. As always with me no professional but hopefully you can follow it anyway. :rolleyes:
It is a mess of calls (a begging teenager, - who has already tried adult calls :), alarm calls from Teo and Vita and the female adult Goshawk) and the movements of the little one and our Ospreys ... wingbeats, branches. Likes to put on headphones! It's worth it for the subtleties! :nod:

Part II:

18:33 A little goshawk seems to be somewhere on the nest.

If Teo or Vita are now careless, the teenage mother could become very rabid. What to do? Mogga wrote that ospreys avoid confrontation as much as possible. How will Teo and Vita behave? Defend or give up nest?

Hello all :wave:

18:49 Vita jumped from the cam support to the nest. She is calling to Teo, he is in the sky, guess with a meal for her.

18:50 Teo lands with the fish.

The day does not allow Teo to rest ... .
20:08 A visitor. I think another Osprey.
It then moves past the nest from right to left. A lighter plumage. But no hawk . I couldn't catch the moment. :rolleyes:

Polly :hi:
Thank you for videos and report :thumbs:
:thumbs: IceAge, Birdfriend

Yes, all was incredible ... recorded all and it starts a bit earlier.

17:49 Flying Osprey calls for short not far away
17:51 Noises near the cam to hear, Goshawk calls. Not good to see, but an Osprey chases a Hawk

17:51:32 Hawk lands

The intruder (was on cam stand) from 18:04 ... think Osprey :puzzled:
Image

18:05 Goshawk chases Teo
Image

19:06 Now Vita chases Goshawk ... whether they touched?
Image


It is a long video from 17:50 till 20:27 with the intruder (Osprey) at 20:08. I already cut out a lot but everything is so interesting.


I wonder who is calling from 18:07 for a long time, Vita and Teo are in the nest ... the intruder :puzzled:
Also, why it is not possible for Teo or Vita to chase off for ever or for a long time a young Hawk. Teo is in the nest and the youngster comes very close, it seems they don't fear the Ospreys, even at this young age.
