May 18.

First night without adult eagle in the nest.

Image

Romme from 2020 left the coasts of Germany on the 25. of April and made a 4 hours travel back to Denmark.
Romme knows the landscape and goes north and south on the east side of its home range.
Romme does not fly to the nest area or into the territory where it was raised.

Rommes travel in april 2022

Added on 21/5-22:

Rommes travel from the 16. of May until the 18. of May
It is close to the nest. But that is it. Romme knows its surroundings well now.

Ole Friis Larsen DOF about young eagles and their memories and flying around in the suroundings and the nest, where they were raised:

'Romme' and the nest
Written by Ole Friis Larsen on 21 May 2022 at 17.06
Coloring rings and GPS transmitters on Sea Eagles show that the young eagles can roam far and wide and return to the nesting area where they grew up, but it is probably more about food than about trips home to the 'family'.

The American Cornell University, which is responsible for very serious research in birds, writes in an article that only a few species of very social birds - for example crows and cranes - can recognize each other after a year of separation.

The adult / adult Sea Eagles form pairs for life and can of course easily recognize each other, but they also see each other daily throughout the year.

'Romme' can probably easily recognize the area he grew up in and has learned to fly in, but he hardly thinks of the nest as his 'childhood home' if he sees it again.

There are examples of young eagles being allowed to visit nests with chicks, and we once assumed that it was probably earlier chicks from the nest, but just reading the color rings has shown that it can also be a complete stranger. young eagle that has nothing to do with either the nest or the adult / adult birds on the nest.

The parent birds can thus probably not distinguish between their own and others' young after a while.

It is common for larger birds such as geese and cranes to stay together in family flocks throughout the winter, but when the parent birds are about to breed again, last year's young are thrown out, and in most of the species the birds will not be able to recognize each other after a while. as a family, but only as fellow species.

'Romme' and his parents will therefore probably now just experience each other as other individuals of the same species.

MAY 28.

The eaglets were ringed today. It was 2 Females.
The adults stayed away from the nest the rest of the day.

Image

Ole Friis Larsens tells about the ringing:'

Two sisters with rings on
Written by Ole Friis Larsen on 28 May 2022 at 15.53
The two eaglets are both females.

They have each been given two rings - one on each leg. One is a colored ring with 'light orange' over 'white', which covers glossy aluminum without color. It is the so-called national ring with special colors for Danish eagles. Other countries have different color combinations in an international system. The other ring is black with white numbers. Previously, the ring was also two-tone with different colors for each year, but for the past 10 years it has been black - and easier to read on, for example, pictures.

The youngest and smallest of the eagles weighed the most.

The oldest of the cubs now has a two-colored ring with the number H101 and a black ring with the number D101. It weighed 4,465 kilos at the ring marking.

The youngest youngster has a two-colored ring with the number H102 and a black ring with the number D102. It weighed 4,610 kilos.

Part of the weight is due to the fact that the eaglets had just been fed well just before the ringing, as we could see on this morning's streaming, and both had stuffed inns.

Kim Skelmose also states - on the way to another ringing - that both pups have a lot of stress streaks on the feathers. These are the ones we have hitherto called hunger streaks, but it is more correct to call them stress streaks, so we will do so in the future because they are not only due to lack of food, but can also occur as a result of stress over disturbances. . Kim believes the stripes fit well with a period of much unrest over crows in the area.

The nest has become much larger since last year. It is now about 2.5 times 3 meters and 1.5 meters high.

The ringing went well and lasted only five quarters of an hour - partly because it is possible to drive an electric lift all the way to the nest.

Kim searched for the third egg but did not find it, even though he was rummaging deep in the nest.

We did not get to talk about the parent birds, but they tend to fly restlessly and screaming around the area while the ringing is going on. The ringing is of course a violent disturbance, but it usually tends to calm down over the eagles when it is over.
