Just after 1330 Zooey brought in a bird.  They tried so hard to eat.  I wish she'd give them smaller pieces and maybe even hit their mouths with them............she's trying I guess.


The one on it's back at one point got hold of the piece and she had hold of it and not sure the little one actually got any of it. :(


P.S. While I was watching this feeding I would have sworn a couple times I saw three mouths.  I must have been the way one was rolling around and just looked like a mouth.

OMG.  I believe the deceased one came out with Zooey when she got excited hearing Newman and it was caught on her foot and got flung off.  She looked down after and then left.

You are right, Nora.....I was watching, and I even think Zooey was a lil shocked at what happened.

It appears we may have lost another one last night. Watching an early morning feeding on rewind, and the chick in front has not moved. Zoey was still having difficulty getting anything into the mouth of the chick that was responding. Newman needs to give some parenting lessons.

Definitely only one left. Literally standing on the deceased one for a later morning feeding. One a brighter note, the remaining chick seems to have gotten a few bites.

3 chicks hatch, 2 starve to death
Do y'all remember if Newman fed Nova's kids last year?
Or fed the young the previous year(s)
WHY isnt he feeding his kids?

You're right.  I started that video and had to stop.  I'm sure Newman helped feed too.  Ok the only actual photo I found was from May 25, 2018, but it's Newman  :D

My feeling is Zooey as brown as some of the feathers look.
