White Tailed Eagles Durbe County, Kurzema in western Latvia
« on: April 07, 2021, 08:00:01 PM »

White Tailed Eagles  Durbe County, Kurzema in western Latvia home of Milda & Raimis and 3 eggs

Asking for prayers for sweet MildaRaimis & Milda have been successfully at this nest since 2017.  Raimis disappeared March 28th.  During that time Milda went 8 days without food. A few males have stopped by but she shoos them away. She did finally leave the nest on April 4th to eat.  Nobody knows the outcome of this family, but prayers are needed for the llttle ones coming, Milda & for Raimis. 

Milda


Update 02.04.2021
The nest of white tailed eagles in Durbe is experiencing events that we have not witnessed in this webcam ever since. On March 28 the male Raimis disappeared, but the female Milda, who remained in the nest, continued incubation of eggs and stayed without food for the almost a week. She also had to repel a pair of strange White-tailed eagles that showed interest about the nest. On April 4 after 8 days without food Milda left the nest for almost 6 hours to feed, but returned to eggs and continued incubation with another male eagle in sight. On April 5  a pair of eagles, presumably male, could be heard fighting under the nest.

Recorded today... A male they call Mr. X has been trying to help it appears... see Gif below.  He has injuries on his foot also.


In March 2017, the nest was occupied by a pair of sea eagles, to which the observers of the nest gave the names Milda and Raimis. In 2018, 2019 and 2020, this pair successfully nested - two pups grew up every year.




Nest info
Nestled in the treetops of the Durbe County, Kurzema in western Latvia is the nest of the white-tailed eagle. These large raptors live throughout Eurasia but were considered endangered or even extinct in several countries. To further understanding of white-tailed eagles, the Latvian Fund for Nature provides a live webcam attached to an old spruce tree that is the preferred nesting spot for a pair of these raptors. White-tailed eagles return to a nesting location year after year.

UPDATE: White Tailed Eagles Durbe County, Kurzema in western Latvia
We have a hatch!  Milda has been assisted by "Mr. C" who is trying really hard, but seems to be his first time at this baby thing. :)  Today another male showed up and Milda let him take over and took a break.  He brought food.  Maybe we have another "Trio" situation here!  Prayers for little one and family :)
 I posted info on April 7th regarding Milda & Raimis ...

Mr. C meeting little one... "What do I do now"?

Little one looking at Mr. C.  "Wassup Mr. C, where's breakfish"?
