the children were fast asleep until their father came. They were obviously suffering from their first lonely night...

05: 54: 10 he starts feeding. Feeds in 1 reception and a little. You can see the fish.
The kids are thrilled. But the fish is not very much and it instantly ended.

The kids can't believe breakfast is over.... they look at the beak of the father, and he picks through the branches, begins to clean the chicks...

The children's necks show that there was not enough food...
Image

The older one's backpack is not full, but with food, but the middle one seems to have nothing at all...
Image

We hope that the father will feed again.

Hungry # 2 sits with his back to his father and chirps plaintively..., the elder busily agrees with him...
Image

the younger one is silent - he lies down on the edge of the nest and sleeps... he must have been on a lot of duty that night...

But they are somehow inconsolable. They don't express their demands aggressively... They must be afraid that father will fly away ... or after so many hours of fasting, at least they have eaten something, and they are happy and do not hope for more...

Or maybe their father had scared them so much with the general cleaning? He cleaned them so hard (especially the older one) that the fluff flew apart...


Father doesn't fly away. He has cleaned all the children in turn and is standing in the nest. Missed you?

06.40.04 everyone has their own way of begging for food... :laugh:
Image

07.05.30 the middle one asks for food again - he is crying, his voice is pouring like a stream... plaintive...
The father has his own method of calming the child - he begins to clean it... but for our # 2, this method is not suitable - he continues to whine incessantly, and the father moves away from him...

The children went to bed, but not No. 2. He sings, and the elder sings with him periodically.
Look at the feathers of the № 1!
Image

Junior woke up.So he plays with a twig, looks into the forest... Father doesn't touch it - it probably has the least fluff in it...

07.13.41 chick #1 suffered from cleaning..., he rests and looks at his father.
Image

07.16 the father tries to feed the children, but he does not succeed... didn't he have anything?

He goes back to washing the children. # 1 again gets more than the others.

Between 10:00 and 11:00 Karl II or Kaia could come again with food, as it was in the last few days.
Today it is much hotter.

I have to go now.
Many thanks, Tatiana and Swenja for all today’s work! :wave: :thumbs:

I reserve a few posts and will post some pictures as soon as I am home.

Water and cooling the chicks seems to be the highest priority at the moment.
