He's even going all around the nest picking up the forgotten pieces. :vangry:
Piret is NOT HAPPY.
20:24 Madis flew away.

@ Nancy: Madis arrived at 20:10 as you said, but without fish (see picture) - he fooled me with this trick earlier (19:31)! :rotf: He lands very fast, snatches the fish and leaves the nest...

Madis arrives with a piece of bark. Doesn't he understand or doesn't he want to understand? :laugh:

Edit: Piret wants fish, obvious.

Unless I´m mistaken, he changed a stick (which he brought) into a fish from the nest earlier this day. Maybe he thought it woud work again? And he fooled Nancy and me twice today - we thought at two different occasions he brought a fish, but he just snatched one from the nest :laugh: . I think it was Millie who has mentioned they would do things like this...

I think he´s self adjusting. 8-) Everything seems to be fine.

But NOW he brings one, good sized fish, difficult to get it loose, but Piret has it.

Edit: and she starts preparing the fish to be fed.

I guess they really have to still learn a lot, Madis just came with a fish and they played tug.of-war over the eggs and the little one :slap: Stepping on everything ... :shock:
But now dinner!

You´re right, this time he brought it, without any doubt. Again a complete fish with head. :nod: And it seemed indeed difficult for him to loose the grip. (Or he just don´t wanted to, who knows :mrgreen: )

Here is the video from 18:37 - Madis brings a stick and leaves the nest with a fish. A good exchanche, I think, if you are a fish eagle :laugh:
