Kaia is home!

20 April 2023

This is a moment I have been waiting for like so many of you. Please – if anyone ever tells you that our feathered friends do not have feelings – show them this video that LizM made of the moment when Karl II and Kaia are reunited.


Thank you to Liz and the Eagle Club of Estonia. You can watch Karl II and Kaia at Must-toonekurg on YouTube.

    Ahhh, thank you Mary Ann; it is a o fine ❤ to see. I’m one that always wishes they could translate the gibberish that birds make. Thank you so much for posting 🎉🙌

    Such good news! In the midst of war and misery, this loving pair are reunited. What joy. Two questions immediately spring to mind. One, how did Karl know Kaia was so close – his excitement made it very obvious that he knew she was about to arrive a moment or two before she flew in? And two, why do storks not migrate together when they are such a closely bonded couple? There must be a reason behind their separate migration journeys.

    1. I suspect he was roosting close to the nest! The migration question is a good one. Ospreys do not do it either that they have seen in West Africa. I have no idea…guess it might be difficult for them to keep up with one another, winds, etc….individual personalities.
