18:03 Piret flies off the nest

18:04 Madis is here, with a fish (or was that fish already here?) The chicks are full and are not ready to eat again.

18:06 Madis offers a pink morsel to the chicks, but they turn their backs to him, so he eats it himself.

18:08 - sweet yes! Now Madis leaves and takes the fish with him!


18:37 Madis returns - there is now a chunk of fish in his right foot (I did not see his arrival, but I am guessing he brought it with him). Piret chirps, but does not get up. Madis stands beside her, looking around.

18:40 Piret stands and flies off. The chicks are still making their bounch-chirp that suggests they are still full. Madis turns his back and eats some fish.

18:42 Piret returns. Madis offers bites to the chicks but they ignore him.

18:43 Madis flies off - leaving the fish on the nest.

18:45 Piret settles down to brood the chicks. The egg looks intact.

Well Madis had a chance to feed the chicks, Piret went.
But it is almost as if Madis is afraid of it, he did a half-hearted attempt, but didn't go through with it.
Even after Piret was back she didn't stop him, but it never came that far.
Now Madis has left and Piret lies over the chicks and egg.

It was special though that in the beginning when Madis started to try and feed the chicks they turned away from him towards Mom. When they saw she didn't have any food they turned to Dad.

Good evening :wave:

It´s interesting to watch Madis and the chicks, isn´t it? Maybe he gave one of them a morsel this time.

Thanks for all the pictures and information!

I think he managed to give some food to the chick...
But maybe, he has to learn to rip it more apart...

Ohansen, I have that same picture too (have several :laugh: of the moment) and that attempt also failed, because Madis pulled back. But is very nice to wait for a next moment and hope it will succeed!

Edit: and then again: after watching Maertha's video I'm not so sure anymore. I don't see the chick swallowing something, but it seems as if that piece from Madis' beak disappears :puzzled:

I think the chick got a bite, but it lost it. It looks like Piret is picking it up shortly after and giving it to the chick at the back of the nest.
