This episode starts with a good poop shot from one of the chicks :D

The male returned and worked with this furry item, he treated it as if it should be some padding for the nest, no food

Chicks are growing and parents do their best to fill these four always hungry beaks, it is a coming and going to bring enough prey for the kids.

Kids are already leaving the nest and some of them prefer to sit a bit more outside

Short zooming-out, one can see the place where some of the kids prefer to sit.
The black plastic bag is still there and swaying with the wind :(

There are a lot of in-and-out-and-back-again at the nest today, they seem to keep the eggs "lukewarm" until the clutch is ready

Meanwhile there are four eggs in the nest.
When I opened the cam there was prey on the nest, maybe delivered today in the morning. Female took it away with her.

New nest material is coming in.
A bunch of dry grass is quickly "melting" with the nest, but the new twig appears to be rather difficult :D It will take a while, until it fits ...
