8:50 am and I turned the cam on to see the end of a feeding. The adult took a short flight from one side of the nest to the other.

9:30 am Poland. I turned on the cam and a feeding was just finishing. The adult moved to the other side of the nest temporarily.

Hi Mary, Scott and friends of this nest! wave

We have received a few more emails from Alex since Judyb posted the first one HERE. I will post the rest of them here in chronological order.

One correction to my text: I am an astrophysicist and NOT a biologist.

There are places in Poland, where WTE could be seen on every few hour walk.
Reportedly some in winter enter river within Warsaw limits, to pray
on ducks overwintering on non-freezing water near power station and
semi-processed sewage outlet. Very old WTE became distinctly pale:
one old I flushed from a tree while cycling underneath had more
whitish feathers than brownish. However, apart from the tail, they at
best look 'dirty (i.e. densly spotted) white' and never clean white
as bald eagle head.

Hi,
this afternoon the camera was off as member of KOO (Dawid Anderwaldt) climbed up to the nest and was able to ship down both eaglets for ringing & investigation.
As usual they got both metal ans plastic-color coded rings.

Soon they were back in the nest. However 4 hour later no parent was seen there. Night vision suggests a dripping rain, but weather here hes improved recently and young should not be cold. However, I am not sure about security from other birds of prey. Keep your fingers crossed.

As part of the operation, the camera was rectified.

Off for long weekend here,
Alex



A couple of scaps from me to go with Alex's last post:

06-07-12
Approx 3::30 am It appears no parent was present for the night.

Approx 4:am Getting light out - one chick was up for a stretch and change of position (missed a scap) but decided it was too early to get up! Still no parent!
