mkb-8702Hønsehauk i paring

Selve paringen hos hønsehauken skjer under en intens lydorgie fra begge fuglene, noe som vises godt her. Når overføringen av sperm er gjort glir hannen fremover ryggen på hunnen for så å hoppe ned på siden av henne. Hele sekvensen tar normalt ikke så mange sekunder, men det kan skje mange ganger i løpet av en dag. Dette er tredje året på rad jeg har fått bilder etter lang tids forberedelse, men i år tok det svært lang tid før fuglene kom på åte. Først siste dagen i mars var det tegn på at de hadde innfunnet seg. Første dagen i april var jeg dermed på plass i teltet, og i løpet av formiddagen skjedde det en paring.
