Tiercel lands with a pigeon (?) - whatever it was, it was large enough to finally feed this bunch!!

Same routine - Formel comes, takes prey away from Tiercel and he then leaves

Tiercel leaves; a bit later there is a concern as the greenery is caught under the eyass' wing - the eyass is able to get it free Smile

The Formel, after standing there a long time, finally leaves!!
