The busy day began with morning visits to the nest by Mom and Dad. Dad flew off to begin the hunt for food returning with a prey item which E4 mantled and claimed for breakfast. Harriet dropped in with a very large branch that could barely fit in the nest. E4 seemed bothered by the stick and tried to move it with no success. Ozzie brought a very alive flopping fish in the late morning which he fed to E4.
E4 was occupied with trying to self feed on some of fish and prey Ozzie delivered in the afternoon. Mom began moving the large branch and E4 grabbed the end to help her get it in the right place. E4 being too stuffed to eat, watched Mom’s technique as she dined on the half eaten fish Ozzie brought in the evening. Everyone ate well today. E4 learned a thing or two about branches, sticks and fish.
