The Friday update about Nest 3 mentioned a temperature of 24.5°C down by the water. Today it was 10°C in the same place at the same time. No wonder that brooding the chicks was the main action on Nests 1 and 2 today.
But back to Nest 3. The chicks certainly fed well between Monday and Friday when the footage for the period was downloaded. This image from 11 June shows Chick 1 with a bulging crop after one session.
The chicks’ down changed over the period.
The male is nearly always present for at least part of a meal and will feed the chicks himself. Friday afternoon was one such occasion although the female had to nag a bit before he obliged. Despite being a less experienced parent than 37 or YA he is less tentative when offering morsels to the chicks than those two.
