According to today's post by Ernest Porter it seems, that aggression towards Kendi started very early this year :puzzled:

:hi:
Today lot of action
In the morning Emoyeni visited the rock ledge below the upper nest. Kendi flew in and landed on Emoyeni's back :mrgreen:
Then Thulane arrived and Emoyeni left the rock. Later also Kendi and Thulane flew away. Whole event is recorded on sunflowerAB321 video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pEJa323 ... e=youtu.be
In the evening Kendi joined parents on the rock.

Image

After few minutes Kendi flew to the palm tree.
Image
Thulane joined Kendi, but she screamed at dad. So Thulane returned to the rock, as he apparently wanted some alone time

Kendi flew to the palm tree before twilight, but didn't stay there for the night. She spotted parents and left the tree.
