What is happening now?

This Spring I found two active golden eagle nests in the area, and I recently joined a professional bird ringer in ringing the chicks. The aerial female has found a new male and they are successfully rearing a chick. I have followed the female for seven years and she was comfortable flying close to me as I checked the area around the nest.

Golden eagle & Red fox taken 19-12-22

Golden eagle - Red fox interactions have occurred on several occasions in recent days outside our photo hide. Here begins an attack; the Ravens follows the drama from the viewer´s place. When the eagle left, the fox also got to eat.

After the longest night of the year 19-12-22 there is only a few hours of daylight to eat and prepare for the next midwinter night. During the last days 19-12-22 we have had several Golden eagles visiting the mire and our photo hide.

Now week 40, we are opening up our hides

The presence now in begining of December 2019 has been good, with eagles even fox and various other birds have been around the hide so there has been life and movement with interaction between the species. Also interaction with Golden eagle and Fox.

Now the Golden eagle's mating season is approaching and the area eagle couple is looking for each other's company.

An amazing winter season is soon to be completed. Good opportunities have been offered to photograph Golden eagles, various small birds and Red fox etc. in snowy and frosty landscape.
Now the spring season has started with Black grouse play which will goes on until the beginning of May. Over 30 Black grouse has so far arrived to the playground. The Whooper swans has begun to arrive and soon the Common cranes are also here to prepare this year's breeding.

The result of the mating pictures I took some months ago: the young male left the nest a couple of hours ago and this is the young females last minutes in the childhood home. I have spent a lot of time the last month on a steep mountain side photographing this two growing siblings, in cooperation with experts on wild Golden eagles.

This night I could shoot both the Milky way and Northern light from the roof of my eagle hide.














































One of the summer's photo project has been to document how a young golden eagle evolved over a few weeks before leaving the nest. The photographing was conducted in close consultation with experts at the Golden Eagle in Västerbotten and was not initiated until the young bird had grown up considerably in order not to endanger the nesting result. The youngster is mostly alone in the nest and the parents show up about once a day to leave food.
By now the nesting is completed. It has been interesting to follow the Golden eagle youngster growing up; it has now left the nest and already become sure of wings in its new element: airspace.





 

Eventually the whole prey is left to the youngster because it should learn to cut by itself. A recurring prey during the month of July has been viper. The parents has flown in with  snakes without head but still freshly caught ,death spasms have continued for a long while in the nest. Viper seems to be food that is easy for the young bird to handle and quickly swallow. Picture: The female coming in with Viper.

The new photoseason has started with succesful reflection pictures of Golden eagles and other birds and good pictures of eagles in the landscape as well. Looking forward to a lot of beautiful photos during the Golden eagle season until the end of March 2015.

Now I have paddled ca 70km on two different water ways. In the smaller river -which had a lonely and beautiful running- there was “ relics” (old logs) from the log-driving epoch so I had to drag the canoe here and there. I have come close to birds and animals like for example several beavers, moose, whopper swans, goldeneyes and wild ducks

Curious moose from the canoe

The new floating hide works very well. A large number of whooper swans are around right now and this morning I even got mating pictures.  At nighttime with a clear sky the stars are reflecting beautifully in the water.

A picture from last week. March, April and October are my favorit months for successful close-ups of Golden eagles.

Today,  27/9 2013 started the eagle season besides Golden eagle there were many small birds as jays and different tits.

It looks great around the ospreys this summer and I’ll be photographing from late july through early august. A falcon pair is also nesting in the vicinity so it’ll be a possibility to get pictures of them both.

Before photographing the osprey and falcon it is very important to prepare the right way so you
don’t disturb their nesting. It’ll be just before the youngsters learn how to fly.

 I will follow the photographer to the hide and then leave, after that the birds will return straight away. Interested?


This picture is from last summer.
