6:23 am Koit brought a frog and Eha did not share until the very end, and then only teensy pieces. Not very nice. Unless I missed an earlier feeding or something.

Switched to laptop and at 6:43 am Eha was gone. Kai was squeaking. Sunny and no breeze.

7:41 am Kai ate one of Eha's white feathers.

7:48 am Eha brought a small vole for Kai. My connection froze a tic but it was gone in the next frame. She handed the vole to Kai so I presume that he just gulped it down. It was so much smaller then the ones Koit brought that Kai gulped down.

Eha stayed on nest at 3 o'clock position, dozing or staring down at the nest. Kai went to the 9 o'clock position to rest with back to Eha.

At 8:42, Kai went up to Eha and was looking at the nest and looking at her. She then drug out what appears to have been a mole that she tore up and fed to Kai.

8:46 am

After the mole was gone, Kai stood up and looked at Eha and even poked at her beak as if asking for more. One shot made Eha look like a dog having his teeth inspected. Despite all the food from yesterday from mia's observations, Kai wants more food. Guess Kai is still annoyed that Eha ate most of the frog. Click on pics to see larger view.

Rolling on floor laughing to 8.46 AM picture.
Frog seems to be the delicacy of Lesser Spotted Eagles. (I guess thatīs why the Estonian translation of the species is "frog eagle". And I guess thatīs why Eha wanted to eat it. Grin)

Koit spent long time with Kai again
6.23 PM Koit looking something from the nest.

A bit before 8 PM Koit left. (Just before he left I heard Ehaīs voice somewhere on the forest). And Eha arrived to the nest about 4 minutes later.
8.08 PM Eha fed Kai with big pieces of mammal, (but not too big pieces).

10.20 PM Eha is stretching.

About 10.25 PM I heard a big bang somewhere. Not sure was it a shot gun or thunder... After that I heard also dogs barking and howling. Eha seemed a bit alert and watchful too.
10.35 PM Kai is chirping and is looking for Ehaīs attention.

Ah, Koit was a good daddy yesterday. Eha was showing that delicacies are for the adults. Grin

4:24 am Eha on nest sleeping

She flew off at 6:04am.

6:21 am Latchkey LSE.

Was not watching all the time so do not know if she came back at all. At 7:30 am Kai was still alone. Eha did return at 7:34 a with a large dead branch with lots of smaller branches. She was even using her foot to try to put it in place. Some of the smaller branches are up against Koit's favorite take off perch.

[Having a hard time typing because Kai has not been quiet since 8:53 am and it is currently 9:10 am. Hmm. Seems much longer.]

Kai has been peeping since 7:44 am off and on but there were no left overs so Eha just preened. Kai would preen at times but then would settle down on nest and peep.

I actually heard Koit calling from the distance and was disappointed when he came in at 8:26 am with a dead branch of his own. Eha and Kai were both looking in his direction.

Kai was disappointed but didn't really fuss.

After fussing with the branch [Koit and Eha], Koit took off.
