Three big mouths

It was a soggy expedition to the Data Centre this evening, and I also got a bug up my nose for my trouble. But it was worth it because I was able to confirm that there are still three chicks on the ledge. A few previous visits by Chris, Marie and me since Friday revealed zero to two chicks, so we were a little concerned.

I arrived a dinnertime, just as one of the adults — I think it was Ivanhoe — flew in with what looked like a pigeon. The young ones eagerly gathered around Dad, squawking. He fed each of them in turn, repeatedly plucking bits of flesh from the pigeon and delivering them to gaping maws. Two of the chicks were more aggressive and crowded out the third, but they all looked fat and healthy.
