Breakfast is Served!

Here's a sample of what the tiercel brought to the nest yesterday to keep his formel content - a baby rabbit, and some greenery. He takes away the remains of the rabbit when she has finished eating. We can also see the brown paper bag which arrived a couple of days ago and that has now been woven into the bowl of the nest under the eggs.

When you see both hawks on the nest the difference in size is quite apparent - the formel is the larger bird.

Thanks again to CamFan for this video footage.
