Thanks the info! 19,9 °C is not warm? In terms of birds....I'm not familiar with the subject :puzzled: Or something else happened here?

Verreaux's eagles are real beauties among eagles, but they are very fierce.

4:19 PM Emoyeni brought the prey - something big and furry. Lot of food for both.
Feeding and self feeding.

Kendi looks gorgeous with his brownish plumage and long legs in white pantaloons.

August 18th
It was funny to watch...... Emoyeni brought the prey (Dassie?) and flew away. Kendi knew, that he should protect the prey, but he wasn't sure what else. He stepped on it and moved away, tried to peck the prey, but didn't know, how to "open" the carcass.
Image

Finally Emoyeni returned with her helpful beak and claws and fed Kendi.

Lately the the broadcast has a long breaks during the day, so it's hard to notice food deliveries, but Kendi's crop looks rather flat.
Today's sunbath.

This year food is delivered more regularly than previous years. I still recall Nessi without food for five days.

It seems Kendi favourite spot is near the solar panel ( for Jono it was palm tree). Video by Asleepnomore Birdwatching https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vr9ZySK ... e=youtu.be
Before the dusk Emoyenii and Kendi flew on the small rocky ledge near the upper nest.
Image

Emoyeni flew away soon and Kendi settled there for the night :shock:
