Last week, Kay Meng and I were fortunate to be able to visit the Board Room of the Franklin Institute and see Superdad in action, feeding his eyasses from a freshly killed starling
In between feeding them, he also ate ravenously himself, and the eyasses respectfully watched him gulping down the food he needs to fuel his extraordinary workload.
When the formel returned, he immediately shared his starling with her.
Then, it was time to go hunt again, and he was gone, leaving her to finish feeding the eyasses.
As they reached their limit for food, each one started to tilt over, completely sated.
They could barely keep their heads up to watch mom take off with a half-eaten carcass...
... and then the food coma hit.
Over and out.......
