Formel lands with a huge branch of greens and lays it right on the eyasses. They must have expressed their discontent with this as she moved it out toward the street part of the nest.

New greenery makes it a challenge to walk around the nest as this eyass finds out!

This appears to be the tiercel feeding the eyasses. The 2 at the end are getting most of the food in the beginning, as the middle one (the lil' one?) patiently looks on.

Finally, the middle one eats as his siblings look on!

About 10 minutes after the tiercel departs, the formel comes to the nest for a brief visit. The eyasses are well fed and resting, so she departs.

This one was walking all over its siblings, but they seemed to tolerate him!!

Breakfast is served!

Tiercel lands with prey and begins to feed the eyasses ... good daddy Smile

Formel (on the left) returns, takes prey away from Tiercel and then he prepares to fly off....

The 2 on the end keep trying to tug the prey out from underneath the Formel's talons. Like yesterday, the one in the middle is the last to eat.

The middle eyass grabs the prey; then the eyass on the left grabs it from him, and ultimately the Formel takes it back and continues the feeding Smile

Everyone gets fed
