A chick eating from a prey, at the nest.
Image

It looked like this chick was attacked for its prey several times and had to share. # 1 and # 2 ate off this prey.
Chick # 3 is still calling for food, and already for quite some time.
But even his crop is a bit bulging, so he has eaten, but there is always room for more....

Right now it is only chick # 3 on the nest, hopefully he'll get some more food later on.
Good night everyone :wave:

Good morning everyone
Female brought a Spruce twig, chicks came flying/jumping on the nest, greatly disappointed, squeaking.

This time a prey, and judging by the sounds and shielding off, it is chick # 3 who has got it.
(Went back to see it in slow-motion: Male delivered it, Chick # 1 has got, Chick # 3 tried to steal it but did not have a chance.)

:rotf: Female with a twig, drops it while standing on the family branch, afraid to land on the nest. After dropping the twig she takes off.

3 screaming "kids" at the nest: "Mom, Dad.... we're HUNGRY!"
Image

Image

And it is possible a prey was delivered, but not at the nest but at a branch somewhere at the right. 1 chick went that way and soon an other left the nest, but also the female came to the nest, creating chaos of course. (all the kids returned) So she jumped on the family branch and then left.
All in all not clear what exactly happened but it was entertaining :laugh:

Now a prey wàs delivered at the left side of the nest. After a "fight" # 2 has it. Chick # 3 had it first but lost it. That's often the case, chick # 3 is very fast moving but looses out on the older sibling's size and strength.

Chick # 1 has left the nest, maybe s/he got a prey after all and is eating it somewhere else? (Just a guess)

Chick # 3 undertook an attempt to steal the prey.

Not sure if he succeeded, but they do this in a special way. First moving backwards, tail first, in the direction of where the prey is. Then push against the other chick who has the prey, turn around quickly and try to pull it away from under the other one.

No, it failed. Chick # 2 is still eating and # 3 is out of sight, but audible, squeaking.

A prey was dropped. Chick # 3 has it and has no intentions to give it up. Fierce "fight" but # 3 still has it and is eating now in turbo speed.

Both older siblings now return to the nest, check the floor for leftovers. Chick # 3 did not eat a piece of organ or intestines, could not see what it was and 1 of the older chicks ate it.

16.30
Chick # 3 tested it, shook his head and spat it out and ate several Spruce needles after that (to get rid of the taste? Nó idea!).
