Hello Friends,

I've just saw what happened in Finland Alma and Ossi babies today. :shock: I'm devastated and praying for protection of Ivo an Iris' babies as well as Mina and Marko. I hope the cam goes back online soon. Much love to all!
Wakeman, this was heartbreaking. :cry:

:wave: Good morning everyone!
Nice to have the livestream back and to see "our" Ospreys are doing fine.

11:30 Iiris is feeding 1 chick, the other 2 are not interested in the fish at the moment :2thumbsup:

:wave: Good Morning, Kitarr!
It is wonderful that the camera is working and our little bonbons, :laugh: , are looking bigger and bigger every day.
I hope that the rainy weather calms down soon.

Bea, have you heard from, Urmas, about when the Eagle Club, will ring the chicks?

Expertatnothing, thank you for the video, from a few pages back. That was funny! 8-)

Hello everybody! :thumbs:

Yeah, the cam is back :loveshower:

But it feels a bit like a fragile luck, in case the cam restored itself again it could stop working again any moment :rolleyes:



Cessie, I haven´t got news about WHO of the Eagle men will come to ring the osprets, neither WHEN one will come.
Last two seasons it was Ülo, when I remember right. With this currently so changable weather in Estonia I suppose that they have to make short termed decisions, with surprises for us :nod:

Thank you, Bea. Yes, I agree that we might have to be surprised. :shock:
I think that the camera cable will be fixed, when they do the rings. Fingers crossed.

Nice sunshine today. :thumbs:

Heavy rain again.
Let's hope the cam/livestream will keep working

18:04 my time
I suppose it is Oldie, who flaps wild with her/his wings and a second I think s/he even jumped, first real wing exercise I have seen in this nest :thumbs:
A moment later another of the chicks made some wing exercise, too, though without jumping in the air.

I hope Kotkamen come soon and ring the chicks, soon they will be in the air :slap: Once some years ago in Latvia the ringers came 'too late' to an osprey nest and one of the chicks escaped flying - and so got no ring.

:wave:
Ivo in with a headless fish, Iiris flew in at the same time.
It looks like a chick took over the fish and started self feeding :shock: Must be Oldie :mrgreen: S/He does eat properly and eagerly :thumbs:

And he does it professionally like a grown-up osprey! The other two have to wait for the next delivery. 8-) One of the two decided to gnaw a stick instead. Iiris came to see whether her help is needed. Nope, they can handle fish themselves.

about 20:35
Iiris jumped down from the cam stand or flew in - it looks like another chick got a fish tail to work with - maybe Middlie? It happened very rapidly and I was on another site a while, so I am unsure about what really happened ... :blush:

20:37
Oldie is trying to take over Middlie's fish tail - and seems to succeed ... :unsure:
... if it is Oldie?

Oh my, a poop shot got hit in on the cam lens! :shock: at ab 20:40

ab 20:45
Iiris jumps down from the cam stand, takes over the fish tail and arranges a feeding queue, all attend, Oldie tries to pick up morsels directly from the fish :mrgreen: If I see correct, Oldie leaves the queue after a while and the other two siblings continue to get fed

ab 21:00
Iiris jumps up to the cam stand calling

21:04 my time
Ivo in with something to eat? Iiris jumps excited down, discusses with Oldie about who will take over the fish - Oldie won :mrgreen:

21:06
Iiris up to the cam stand again

21:11
Oldie satisfied - I can't see if s/he left something of the fish tail --- but the crop tells s/he has eaten well.

21:14
Yes, there is something left and either Smallie or Middlie continues to work on the rests of the fish tail :thumbs:
