And over the other shoulder now:

She leaps onto the branch at the far end:

Dad keeps delivering:

And now Dad's off to a branch:
Image

He makes it back to el nido after 12 minutes:

Mom makes a move at 20:34:

Dad's got one more feeding up his sleeve tonight:
Image

He reacts nervously to a gunshot (at least three were heard between 21:17 and 21:23):
Image

And this is the final moment of the day to have been captured on video:
Image

Good night!

30 May

The stream comes back at 6:49:
Image

El macho is no great rush:
Image

He leaves the nest (probably just in order to spend a few minutes perched on one of the branches next to the nest) at 10:38:

Dad comes back into the nest at 10:42:

Dad keeps making sure the chick stays in the shade:
Image

It's generally a peaceful day (though the chick could do with a meal)
Image

Here's some evening rain:

The shower's over:
Image

Dad does some jumps to get water off his wings:
Image

Ouch! He's caught the chick with a talon:

That doesn't stop him from more high jump practice:
Image

What a bird!
Image

He even manages to provide an appetiser (it's probably leftovers from the last few meals - his picks up some pieces from the floor, and the chick is not particularly impressed with the quality)

Thankfully, Dad is relieved of duty at 19:38:
Image

It takes him just 13 seconds to leave:
Image

A few minutes later Mom starts to feed the little one:

A few minutes later Mom regurgitates a proper chunk of meat:
Image

Now we can play some foodball:
Image

The chick can have no complaints now:

Naturally, tonight it's Mom who's staying with the chick:
Image

The day ends a little early (not enough sunlight to power the camera):

Good night!

The stream starts at 6:51 today:

La hembra and el pollo are taking it easy this morning:

At 10:09 Mom suddenly leaves the chick alone:

A baffled little chick (Mom's out of sight):
Image

Mom comes back a minute later with a fresh harvest of soil, moss and possibly grass:
Image

Why are you looking at me like that?

The chick follows Mom across the nest (note the chick's bare neck, so characteristic of the species)

A gentle hint of a feeding:

Mom and her child:

Dad comes home at 13:04:
Image

Mom take a little longer to leave than seems to be the recent norm:
Image

Dad leaks some liquid food (to the nest floor):

This image looks more promising:
Image

Mom returns at 13:09 bumping into Dad, who is a little slow in making room:
Image

Mom's on the left, in case you'd like to draw a comparison:

Now Mom goes up on the branch at the far end:
Image

While she's still perched, Dad takes off at 13:17:
Image

In fact, he hasn't gone very far, either:

The little one in full glory:

Just as Mom takes off for good, the chick adopts a very vulturesque pose:

Where's everybody?

Is that you, Dad?

The male eventually comes back into the nest at 13:38:

Dad shares a morsel with the chick:

El macho prepares to defend the nest:

Heavy rain and thick fog descend over el nido:
