It had been a couple to three days since the adult hen stayed on the nest for any length of time. On July 3 the hen stayed along side the young one for quite some time and the young one tried to get the hen to feed it a couple of times, but the food was hidden under her and once she flew away, the young one ate alone. Both the adults have been dropping a meal off either on a branch, or this day back on nest and then the young one has to locate it. I think that yesterday it lost a couple of meals and thus the adults are once again dropping it by the nest. Once the young one has completed it's meal, it very quickly returns to the branches of it's nest tree. It has begun little brief flights from one side of tree to the other and makes a grand slam entrance when it dives into the nest to retrieve it's meals~
* NOTE~ Can you spot the eyas from where I saw it from the grove recently?
