Regardless of the number of eggs in the nest (sometimes they are even three) only one chick fledges (the fledging of two nestlings has been noted only once in Estonia). A pity but cainism is encoded in the life of greater spotted eagles.
Tiiu feeds the larger nestling with prey brought by male Tõnn – small rodents constitute about 3/4 , the remainder consists of birds as well as frogs.
