A food pass… (sort of)

3rd July 2016

There was a flurry of commotion over the weekend when all 4 fledglings were up in the air. 3 of them were chasing after the ringed male (Wilfred) and making a lot of noise.

Wilfred was carrying something of particular interest, a scrap of food maybe? An old catch that he had taken from a cache? No not quite…

Its a stick!

One of his brothers still clearly wants it though.

“Give it to me!”

Of course, this aerial play is beneficial to the birds as it will develop the flight skills essential to survive on their own once they leave the nest and will help them avoid sticky situations.
