Finally they are settling down, but not without preening first, and the one in front takes a jab at its sibling on the right...

One of the haggards brought another mouse (lots of food coming in today!) but there were no takers at this time (already in their food comas). But later we see one of the eyasses eat something, and it took awhile for it to go down. Did he find the mouse? Are nestovers no longer "safe" left on the nest? We're seeing them "feed" themselves more and more... reaching for food while the haggard has it trapped in its talon, and sometimes the eyass is getting the prey!! (Of course the parents are grabbing it right back, lol)

This was another time that the Tiercel (right) brought prey to the nest, but there wasn't any feeding. It was very difficult to see, but the Formel may have flown off with the prey in her talons when her eyasses didn't show any interest. She put it down, then carried it around after the tiercel left, but then turned her back on me!!

Very crowded nest!
