9. April


During the last days I saw that parent birds often get up from the nest and only stand over the egg for a while.
I suppose it is quite warm in the area and when parents don´t want to have a boiled egg they have to get up that it won´t overheat.

From today

Male (?) delivers a snake, but female doesn´t eat it immediately. He stays a while and sends several astonished looks because the snake is not getting eaten. :D

Interesting episode :mrgreen:

Female (?) is sitting on the egg and suddenly is surprised .... something is moving under her!
The snake from the last delivery, not eaten yet, is still alive :rolleyes:

She got up, watched the whole event a while, lifted the snake up and maybe ended her life then ....

My recording stops not long after this event, so I can´t say more about the fate of this snake ....

I am absolutely fascinated by the food situations here on this nest .... *wow*

While eaglet was still fed with the lizard, a new delivery came in, a snake. The female ate it herself.
