I wonder if "yawning" of BS's means the same as for eagles: "crop drop", when birds drop (sort of swallow) food from the crop to the stomach digestion. :puzzled: So not exactly the same as we humans "yawn" ...

Thank you, Hellem
Fortunately, that shouldn't be a big problem, because at 20:16, it got food from Kati. :2thumbsup:

20:16 The youngest storklet has eaten several black little things.

Really, Solo ? :puzzled:
If that "yawning" (the picture of Anne 19:19:07) means "crop dropping", how is it then called when they really yawn, when they are tired or wake up from sleeping ?
Is "yawning" the expression for crop dropping only for storks/storklets ?


I always thought i see a difference in the way e.g. bald eagles (and e.g. peregrine falcons) lift their head up with open beak, in case they
a) are yawning
b) are doing a crop drop
c) are trying to cast a pellet.

This feeding was very nice, not all 4 have eaten.
Interesting was also the minute before, when small #4 was begging for food at the beak/or bill of Kati. I liked this very much, how small #4 (1 and a half day old) already learned caring for itself just like the big siblings :D

20:15 begging

20:15 demanding
Image

20:16 eating, with big appetite :laugh: (#4 on the left side)
Image


It was also nice to see: the small #4 had a little effort with the last, a long lamprey (or whatever it was) and it lost it once, while Kati was already eating back. Kati saw it and let him try again - #4 picked it up again and in the end swallowed it successfully :laugh:
Thanks, Kati :thumbs:

Researchers have proferred a rich and varied slate of theories, all supported with varying amounts of evidence, about the precise reason that birds and animals yawn, but nothing is conclusive. (source: https://www.birdwatchingdaily.com/begin ... irds-yawn/)
...We don’t yet understand all the many functions of yawning....
