Default Watching birds nest.

At this time of year there are some intersting webcams to watch. I have enjoyed Bald Eagles nests in USA and Canada, and now there is a Black Stork nest in Estonia.
Unfortunately, this is not a good year for Bald Eagles nests. The winter was too long and harsh and some adult pairs are not nesting at all, and some are late. There is a webcam at https://www.wvec.com/cams/eagle1.html
where the eggs are due to hatch in about a week.

The Estonian Black Stork cam is at (copy and paste) mms://tv.eenet.ee/kurepesa
Plenty of drama at that nest - too many storks chasing too few nests, so there are battles for ownership of the nest. The current residents have three eggs and have twice fought off an intruding male stork, and a raven who wants the eggs for dinner!

Cool, thanks for sharing. They have no privacy.

There is an English language version of the web page, with links to film clips.
