3:45 pm Shadow didn't get up really. Just kind of scooched around to reposition. He's so careful and this is wonderful. Now he really has to learn that they need food and feedings. Hope Mrs BB brings back something.

2,888 people watching on YT and only two of here to document this nest. What a shame.

They zoomed in to show the food. It's a BIG fish. Well done Mrs BB. Let's hope Shadow learns to bring in food and feedings too.
