The chick has been hatched and the interfering egg shells have been removed from the nest by female bird Maia

Lesser spotted eagle           Väike-konnakotkas           Aquila pomarina   

The female bird laid two eggs in the nest with a long interval, on May 2 and 7. Lesser spotted eagles also allow only one chick to fledge from a nest.

The incubation lasted almost six weeks despite the very hot weather in between..

The mother started feeding the chick a little before quarter to five .
