23:47 According to BirdLife Israel, the chick's parents spend the nights on the cliff opposite the nest, so they are still keeping watch over the little griffon

Good night to all three of them

10:43 But today is set to be an exetremely hot day (38 degrees according to forecasts)
Image

11:31 There's close to zero activity on the ledge

13:44 The feeding is quick - the chick's appetite has merely been whetted

13:47 This flapping of the wings has got nothing to do with pre-flying exercises
Image

13:48 The chick has put on quite a show, but all to no avail
Image

14:10 At least it looks as though there is some cloud cover, which could make the afternoon more bearable

01:04 However uncomfortable this posture might look, it's probably a good idea to get used to seeing it...

11:32 Instead, a pigeon pays the chick a visit
Image
