21 May

The female is where we left her last night:
Image

Mom's a bit sleepy, perhaps?

But the chick's demands must be attended to promptly:

It's a nice little feeding for the 8-day-old chick:

Then it's back to bed for both:

It's getting on for noon and Mom has good reason to shield the chick from sunlight:

It's finally becoming possible to identify the chick's features:

Mom's doing her best to prevent the kid from overheating:

Mom reacts to her own stepping on the chick:
Image

She leaves in stages - first she leaps onto a branch (pictured) and then, over a minute later, takes off for good:

Dad's time on the nest is free from incident:

La hembra spreads her wings, but the chick - exposed to sunlight - is not impressed:

They finally kiss goodbye at 16:35:

And it's the female who stays with the chick (but Dad hasn't gone far - he'll perch on one of the branches to the left of the nest):

Dad informs us of his current location (the five feather tips inthe top left corner):
