Hello together, hello Liz, :wave:

so we have a fourth storklet! :loveshower: :bounce:
Welcome to the world, little one! :loveshower:

13:39 It's just out of its egg shell. :D

I hope, there is food enough for four and also for five storklets. Until now I don't see a lack of food, until now there is enough. A problem could be first, that the smaller storklets don't reach the food, because the bigger siblings hinder them. And I hope the parents will feed also small fishes and not only the lampreys. For the small chicks they are mostly too big and therefore very difficult to eat.

Gaja has build a big wall of moss around the storklets. :D
Maybe it's because of the heat? There are also a lot of bigger insects flying around.

15:56 The view before

15:57 Gaja starts building the wall

16:43 Feeding. Gaja has regurgitated one bigger piece. It looked like a predigested fish.

Image

The two bigger storklets had captured it. They could bite some pieces off, the biggest storklet got the most.
The third hatched storklet has slept the whole time. But the fourth storklet - behind its two bigger siblings - was also very interested in the food. It hasn't had a chance to get something. :unsure:
