wings streching
it sits very long there. As if they would have been more often on a branch before.

hops! i hadn't noticed that Makonite was back. she was hiding behind the trunk on her favourite branch in shadow. just noticed her jumping back on the nest.

now the sun became covered by clouds and i think i was able to see her number 6.
wing exercises on the nest... and hops! she went to the front right branch. :laugh:
Image

a minute later back on the nest. :rolleyes:

Today there are no fish deliveries? Parents watch their children?

as far as i can see there are at least three fish on the nest... half-eaten by flies. :mrgreen:
but eagles do eat carcasse, too.

i think Pukite began to eat. :D
Image

but Makonite came to disturb her. some pecking! :rant:

13:42 Lubana flew around the nest in the back from left to right and then in with a fish. Pukite got this one because she was ready to take it.
oh dear: the expression on Lubana's face when she comes shows how careful she is with her kids! :slap: :mrgreen:
Image

Makonite had to first come down from her balcony but then it was too late: mommy gone and sister had taken the fish, which seems to be a nice-sized bream again (Lubana's regular dish).
Makonite cries and whines frustrated and bites a stick. :mrgreen:

Makonite has learned to leave Pukite eat in peace. :thumbs:

i've noticed that they many times have picked old bird's bones even though there has been fresh fish in the nest. maybe they are tastier? :rolleyes:

if there is a lot of fish in the nest so that they can choose they eat them in order from newest to the oldest. last in, first down the throat. it the same thing if eaglets eat themselves or a parent is feeding them. it's always the freshest first. :nod:

13:52 Pukite stopped eating and now Makonite is continuing. Pukite didn't eat long.

i have found at least one fish delivery from this morning. at 5:14 Sartas brought a big bream which Pukite took as she was again ready to take it. Makonite was on her branch.


as far as i could count there were at least 4 fish in the nest before this new one. these four were so shiny that one can see them. maybe there were some older pieces of fish, too, but they had become so 'nest-coloured' that they didn't shine out anymore. 8-)

15:49 Sartas brought a fish and this time it was Makonite's turn to get it.
Sartas didn't waste his time at the nest, about 8 s this time. 8-)
