Good morning Liz01 and everyone!

i have several questions regarding the events in this nest.
First, let me tell you that I do not know the WTEs on this nest very well. I simply lost track yesterday: who was who? And I could not - but I am still a "newbie" - interpret the sounds (calls, crying, whining etc.)
I have seen some similar situations when a young eagle visits a nest with a couple sitting on it, but the encounters I saw were usually rather short and quite clearly determined: "Occupied! - I see.-Now go. - OK"
The constant "whining" of the eaglet here: Is this a submissive voice telling the Oldies: "I do not want to hurt you, I just need company"?
And second: How common is such a behaviour of such a young 1st Y eaglet?

Susanne, good morning :D great to see you here.
ame (Durbe thread) can best answer these questions. I learned from her and I'm still learning.


a quick detection of who is in the nest, male or female, is when they call. The voices differ significantly.
Silva and Sliters have different external characteristics.
Silva has a scar on her beak below her nostril. Male &female tail feathers are of course different.
Sliterts still has amber eyes
Silva's eyes are already very bright

How quickly a juvenile is chased away from the nest depends on the season. There is no breeding season at the moment, so the adults don't react as violently.
I don't think juveniles are submissive.
this juvenile is from this year. So extremely young . I think the adults don't take it seriously at all. He is just a annoying :laugh:

Thank you very much Liz01!
