Video:  Good Morning, Here’s Breakfast

Remo flies into the nest with breakfast for Tuuli. She flies off with it, perhaps to dine in solitary splendor, while he takes his turn incubating their two eggs.

Video:  Good Morning Tuuli & Remo

Tuuli is very hungry this morning! She gulped down that frog that Remo delivered. After a short chat, she takes off and Remo incubates their two beautiful eggs.

Watching the May 20 video by beans. One gulp frog.  :mhihi. Tuuli trilled and chuk the whole video, even when away from nest, can hear her farther and farther away. A beautiful sound, and quite different from the bald eagles.  :biggrin3. A really good view of Remo turning the eggs and then settling to incubate.  :biggrin6

Thanks beans.

Video:  Are Tuuli’s Eggs Ready to Hatch?

Is hatching imminent? Tuuli carefully turns her eggs. She also turned her eggs about 15 minutes ago. Does she hear the chick inside? With all the spots, it's difficult to know whether or not the egg(s) has pipped.

The first egg (the dark and speckled one)is now 41 days and maybe will not hatched.  Either it has caved in a bit on one end or the light makes it look odd.  One hatchling is better than two, here, anyway.

Remo serves breakfast (small mammal - mouse or vole),

It seems that an egg is hatching!  And it appears to be the dark, speckled one.  We can hear the chick singing in the egg and can see the egg tooth punching through the pip hole.  Here we go...

These pictures are from noontime, June 10 (Estonian nest time)

Tuuli left the nest for a few minutes and brought back some greenery
