Good Morning!

07:22 The red sun is looking up into the first autumn's day...

Who knows what is there for all of us around the world? Heavy rains? storms? cold weather?
Let's pray for a mild season after all the weather events of 2021. :2thumbsup:

Liz has uploaded new clips on YT, thank you so much! And this brings up the question - somebody else has asked about this before, sorry, can't find it right now - : since Liz stated on YT: "The behavior of the two looks promising." :2thumbsup: , yes, I think, we all agree - sooner or later we will need a name for Mr L. I saw that there were votings for proposed names in the past (regarding several eagle species), but I don't know who initiates such a procedure. All I know is that it should be a Latvian name. My favorite would be Ludis ("famous fighter/warrior"), but maybe you prefer something with "M" in order to represent both eagles as the M-couple at Durbe ...

Susanne :hi:
the Latvian forum members decide the name. if they make a vote all members can participate. i haven't noticed that they have talked about giving Mr L a proper name yet.
i only hope that they would give him a name soon and that the name will be short and simple, with no special characters. 8-)

9:50:05 a jay flew to the left rim of the nest.
9:50:10 another jay flew to the top.
the jay knocked and stuffed something on the nest. maybe he/she brought an acorn or something like that in his/her cheek pouch and hid it in the nest. then he/she jumped to the left branch and wiped his/her beak. then he/she flew to the top.
9:51 one of the jays jumped to the upper branch on the right and then to the poop branch. then the jay flew by the camera and probably landed next to it, but i'm not sure.
9:52:15 a jay flew by from the spruce on the right.

9:54:13 a jay jumped from the top to the poop branch and then to the right branch and down where he/she called and then jumped back up. then the jay flew to the right
9:54:46 (after a few seconds) two jays flew on the right to the spruces there and 4 s later aj jay fluttered down from somewhere above the camera.
then the jay jumped boing-boing-boing to the top branch, called and flew up, apparently to the top.
9:55:14 a jay flew from the top (?) towards the Sisters.

13:44 voices of great tits very near.
then a nuthatch on the nest.
13:45 a great tit to the back rim.
13:46 two great tits, one on the right branch and the other on the left branch.
Image

then on the nest. a nuthatch was in the recording studio and shouted into the microphone and banged it. :mrgreen:
i think there were more than these two. there were so much talking. :laugh:
13:47 three great tits on the left. when they left two nuthatches on the left.
13:48:02 a siskin (or a great tit??) flashed by the camera.
- this was probably the same little bird who came again a little later. the nuthatches are inside the blue ellipses.

13:54 a little greenish grey bird with two bright (yellow) stripes on the wing. somehow i got the feeling of a goldcrest but it could have also been a siskin.
the siskin is probably more likely. a goldcrest should have a white ring around the eye and white tips on wing feathers. :help:
Image



this is probably the same bird who flashed by the camera so that i got only one frame of it on "tape". the flight was so fast that the bird had to be very small. well, siskins are small, too, but gold crests are smaller. i can't say which this is and who the previous bird was or were they the same bird. it's possible.

Sep 24

good morning!

at about 20 min past 4 it began to rain hard for about 20 min.
after that there was some rain but not so hard.
in the morning it became too windy to find any owl's calls. perhaps they were not even in the mood for singing.

9:57 - 9:59 black woodpeckers called nearby. i think there were at least two.


10:12 a jay flew to the left branch with something in his/her beak, an acorn maybe. the jay was working on the left branches. was he/she hiding the thing there?
and back to the left branch and to the nest.
10:13:55 another jay flew by on the lower right corner and the jay flew to the camera with a short stick that he/she took from the nest.
the images on the left and centre are enlarged to 170 % of the original.
Image

then once more back to the top branches.
10:15 the jay flew away to the spruce on the right.

17:28:59 a jay buzzed very near.
17:29 a jay started calling in the forest very nervously. i think this was another jay.
17:30 a jay visited the top branch and cried a lot. he/she seemed to be very upset. i couldn't see or hear anything that might have upset him/her. :puzzled:

18:11 a jay flew in. then a blackbird flew down from the top and came up to the nest, too.
18:12 another jay flew to the top branch.
the first jay had an acorn and started to hide it.


we are going to have Little Sisters growing on the nest next spring, a little forest. :mrgreen:
