012 (2) Little Beggar [P,R]

The little Red-tailed Hawk chick, though begging, missed out on this food delivery. The three eaglets can now feast on what is brought to the nest without being 'beak-fed'. The other parent was still out however, so I am hopeful it brought something

and fed the hawk before the day was done. (Roberts Bay, BC).

 

For those interested, there is a recent feeding video on U Tube at the following link. www.youtube.com/watch?v=pVTH0pWl_GI
