There's little food on offer today for the little one, but plenty of shade:
Image

Where is she? :puzzled:

Protecting the chick:

Dad's into his 26th hour on the nest:

The chick is asking for food:

The chick lets out a yawn:

And now el pollo turns towards Dad and starts pulling at his wing:
Image

Mom's arrival (19:02) catches Dad napping - he reacts just two seconds before her landing:
Image

Let's hope he can find some food for himself tonight:

How are you, my little one?

Mom regurgitates a sizeable meatball onto the nest floor and serves dinner:

Feeding, part 2:

Dad interrupts the feeding at 19:06, bringing a fresh pine branch. Nobody's really paying attention to him, so he takes off half a minute later.

Feeding, part 3:

Tired but watchful:

Mom grabs a stick and places it right in front of the chick:
Image

The chick uses the same stick to support his/her head (a coincidence? :puzzled:)
Image

The camera switches off tonight at 21:26:

Good night!

Maybe we could have breakfast now?

Mom leaves the nest at 10:52:
Image

And she returns two minutes later:

Dad does his best to feed the chick...:
Image

... but his best is very limited today:
Image

The chick has discovered why vultures have necks:

The feeding - if there was any - is over:
Image

The nest has to be defended again:
Image

And it's another close encounter:

While Dad spreads his umbrella over the chick, the visitor spends three minutes on the branch (and then leaves without causing any more trouble):
Image

Another minor disturbance:
Image

But where's the food?

The chick keeps asking questions of Dad:
Image

Dad tries to answer, but he has very, very little to give:
Image

As another day draws to a close...:

... Dad gets up one more time:
Image

He makes another attempt to feed the chick:
Image

And here's how the camera saw them for the last time today:
Image

Let's hope Mom's foraging trip is a success.

But there are no free lunches, Dad seems to be saying:
Image

The chick can count on Dad when it comes to protection from sunlight:
Image

Or when a potential visitor must be told (s)he is not welcome:

Mom comes home at 15:30:
Image

Dad's ready for take-off:
Image

Will Mom be able to feed the little one?

Affirmative. She produces a massive chunk onto the nest floor:
Image

Next, she moves the meal a little to the right:
Image

A long feeding followed with Mom obstructing the view completely.

Half an hour later, the chick wants more:

The chick scrambles a little towards Mom, who provides a second course:
Image

This is another 10-minute feeding:
Image

The little beastie has quite an appetite:
