There was a person just up on the nest weighing the chicks and taking DNA (I think), I missed if he banded the chicks. According to the diary they would be banding the chicks.

Great video, I loved the shots of the weighing

Bob

PS: I forgot to mention that some fish was left for the chicks

recording of yesterday's Live is here: mms://video.eenet.ee/tooni/rongastamine.asf

The man in the nest is ornitholog Urmas Sellis. He the person who arranged whole this live feed thing. He speaks estonian. He's first word were something like:"It's very hard to keep balance here because i am standing with both legs only on one branch ... so if i dissapear from the picture that means i couldn't keep right balance". So his speech was full humour.
enjoy!

The chick(s) did move but it might have been a clump of cotton-wool for want of detail.

Black storks are rare and shy but I would have to be getting better quality images to find the patience to keep shooting or viewing ...
I would have to agree with Brendan on this one...

Really can`t cheer up You guys about this subject. That`s the nature! Of course we could create some artificial suspense, but that is really not the aim of this project. The main purpose is maybe mostly scientific - to learn habits of creatures who keep long distance from human. The second purpose is maybe that it is very much reality show and available for everybody.

But... after storks leaving their nest to head to south in the fall, i hope we cut some short best of of this summer.

Nice footage, Frank, and much more interesting. I'd still edit it down to only a fraction of the long megamix and chuck in some fades between clips or changing light conditions (to prevent hard cuts). Place in some soft music and interesting background narrative about the birds and it will be a winner.

I would have liked to have seen higher quality imagery, and maybe at least one or two different camera angles. If you were unable to reset the camera position, it can be helpful to use a wireless remote control to zoom the lens wide and then tight to take in different viewpoints of the same subject (depending on your camera model of course).

2nd Black Stork just left the nest

At 1208pm 30th July (Hong Kong time +8GMT) I was fortunate enough to see the second Black stork chick leave the nest, there is now just one lone chick gathering up the courage to fly.

Thanks to all those involved in the project for supplying such marvelous pictures and sound

So, this is the end for this year. Tooni(male stork) is some hunderds kilometers away from Estonia. He got new radio transmitter, so we will trace it whole winter. Chick will stay close for awhile. They fly now fluently.
Learning to fly. So thanks everyone for being interested. I hope this project will continue next spring. Just a little before storks arrive to the nest.
