Wish I knew what Eha was thinking. She has interesting expressions on her face as she looks at her two 'lets.

The posters at Looduskalender were sounding glum yesterday. Apparently E1 was biting E2 quite a bit.

The cam went down around 3:30 am. When it came back at 3:56 am, Eha was off the nest.

At 3:59 am, E2 poked his head up.

Eha came back around 4:02 am and E1 was looking up. E2 was peeping. I am beginning to think that E2 is just a talker. There are no nestovers however so Eha went and sat on E1.

There are times when I wonder if Eha can hear well. I remember that she didn't react to the Jay who was above her until he smacked her with his wings. When E2 cries, she gives no sign that she hears at all. When Koit comes to the nest, if she isn't facing in the direction he comes to the nest, she doesn't know he's coming until he lands. When he brought her a frog this morning, she had no idea he was coming. She was standing and preening.

E2 was peeping away, finally got out of the nest bowl and crawled to 1/4 piece of mole that was left from an earlier drop off. He was peeping and poking at the mole piece and Eha just watched him for a couple minutes. When she did pick up the mole, she offered him the entire 1/4 piece. Frustration Eventually she broke off smaller pieces to offer him. It seemed like she was holding them too high. [I'm feeling negative here.]

Luckily i havenīt had too much time to watch the nest. I am also hoping for the happier times (with one chick). For comparison: The Latvian 2nd chick died yesterday (on the 9th day after his/her hatching). It will probably happen here soon too...

Eha has turned E1 into a monster - size wise. He's gotten so huge. As soon as E2 sat up E1 started biting him. E2 cried and managed to get away to the far edge of the nest. Eha stays with E1.

Don't understand cainism. Seems to be pointless. But I suppose wild animals rarely show what we consider compassion. Herd animals avoid an injured member. Only elephants and to some extent bison and buffalo rally round the youngsters. Not sure how they react to an injured member.

I think that it has evolved into their genes. I read once years ago that there is not enough food in the area for LSEs to raise more than one chick. They usually lay 2 eggs to make sure that they get one chick to raise should the second one not hatch --which I have seen quite a few times. They do practice survival of the fittest for sure. It is sad to those of us who just love these little chicks and want to see them both grow up. I don't personally know if the second chick is ever allowed to survive---I have never seen it happen. sigh sign
