Chrissy, i had two or three hiccups but none after that. i hope that the stream will stay stable. yesterday it was so terribly frustrating.

10:58 Malda stepped on Reinis on her way to bed.

11:56 Reinis got up and began WEx. he "smelled " the wind with his wings. then he made WEx jumping on Malda.

Malda got up, too, and both made WEx.
11:58 Reinis was actually flying above the nest. :2thumbsup:
11:59 more feeling on the wind.
12:00 he lay down. Malda made WEx on the left edge.
12:01 she lay down.

12:00 Malda got up and made WEx. then she lay down again.
12:01 someone interesting flew over. both looked up.
12:02 i think Malda nibbled Reinis in the back. Reinis didn't like it. beak measurement! that was not friendly. both got up.
12:03 Reinis pooped. then he made strong WEx. he was feeling the wind. :whistling:
then he looked down on his bridge but didn't go there. perhaps it was too windy. instead he made WEx on the nest.
12:05 he walked to Malda. she nibbled his feathers. Reinis was looking at the bridge... but he didn't jump there. maybe the wind was too hard. both began to preen.

Some 'random' pics. What a strong wind!

Today Malda is 74 days old. 10 weeks and 4 days. (If Malda is indeed the oldest eaglet and no mix-ups have happened in the meantime)
Reinis is about 1.5 days younger.

thank you for the pictures Anne! :2thumbsup:

they both seem to become more confident in their wings at about the same pace. their age difference is so small. anyone of them may be the first. :whistling:

13:30 Malda got up. she made eagle yoga which was not quite easy in the wind.
13:31 she lay down again.
13:43 Reinis saw something interesting. then he rushed up to feel the wind.


13:44 he began to make strong WEx. also Malda got up to preen.
13:45 she lay down again. Reinis felt the wind ... then he made some WEx with jumps.
13:46 more WEx.
13:50 more WEx.

13:52 Reinis was hovering above the nest. this he stayed in one place in the hard wind. he had better control of his wings than earlier when the wind blew him back.
then he stood for a while in the wind with his wings stretched, feeling the wind in the wings.
13:54 - 55 more WEx in the hard wind. (a week or two ago we had here the video of an eagle flying with a camera attached on his back. there one could see what the wind looked like on the wings. it was something similar to this. this hard wind gives an opportunity for to practise real flight. seen from the ground flying looks effortless and silky smooth in our eyes but up there it is hard work with the wind ruffling the feathers all the time.)

13:56 Reinis lay down behind Malda.

14:00 Reinis got up and lay down again. (i could not see why really)
14:12 Reinis got up.
14:13 he made a jump which was not very successful. he lay down instantly. the wind was a bit deceitful. he is careful! :thumbs:

14:56 Malda got up and lay down.
14:58 Reinis turned a little.
15:00 some beak measurement, quite friendly. Reinis began to dig the nest bottom. he grabbed a fistful of mushed hay and started WEX & CEx with it.
15:02 balancing on top of the sticks on the right... WEx. then he picked and plucked a stick, or actually it was perhaps an ex-green twig which had gone bald.
"... where to put it?" :whistling:

15:08 Reinis made WEx. a PS. then more WEx.
stick work!
Image

15:09 Malda got up, too, and made WEx. Reinis continued stick work. he put the stick in the middle of the nest, at straight angles with the other sticks. :laugh:

15:30 Reinis started nibbling Malda's face in a friendly way... finally he tried to pull out Malda's tongue. a French kiss. even Milda and Raimis don't go this far. :mrgreen:

... and again.
16:10:20 louder. Malda was preening.
16:11 louder and louder screaming....
Malda was looking in the sky... Reinis only whined. odd. :puzzled:

16:13 Reinis whined more. Malda began to look high in sky...
16:14 also Reinis turned to look in the sky. an eagle flew by from left to right on the top right.
Image

then the eagle flew around the nest tree behind it to the left. the eaglets looked at it.
16:15:04 in the top left corner far and high flying to the left. it must be a parent.
