Our BS found a wife
Abigyl, another sad year at the Latvian Nests. :sad:

Female BS came much too late. this nest has been without luck since Kaupo and Gaja. I'm afraid next year will be even worse. The forest is drying up.
Even if Teo had found a female. There is no longer enough food for all wild birds. This is the reason why the hawk is now emptying the nests. for the wild animals the things are better in the cities than in their usual places. there they can survive. Forest and meadows are slowly dead areas.

:hi:
After all these events during the last seasons the story from handsome Teo is really sad and heartbreaking. I feel so sorry for him. :bow:
His female Vita isn't come back...she was still so young.
Maybe Teo abandoned that nest and can find another one somewhere with a lovely female.

The young Latvian girl still is Teo's current mate:

She is calling - and waiting for fish is rewarded by Teo, of course:

And here's Teo, later, his girl had finished her fish, and he has done some nest work - rearranging branches, etc.

June 21st

Vērotăja shared a wonderful video. :loveshower:
Check it out...even if the main character isn't an Osprey. A few days ago I also googled cuckoo...they are very present this year. I was surprised how similar it is to a sparrowhawk in size. The banded chest... I had a completely different idea of ​​a cuckoo. Although I knew beforehand how his breeding business was going... :rolleyes:



Thanks to Vērotăja! :2thumbsup:

Teo and the new female are still together... :innocent:
