4:33 pm His crop doesn't look very full. Hopefully he'll eat more when it gets cooler this evening.

Thanks zoomie for the shot of Simba standing at the rails and the long shot down down to the ground. Simba is growing up standing with the big guys now.
That was a tricky shot.

4:39 pm Shadow returns. Simba appears to be calling or squeeing but there are no sounds to be heard. A couple of very soft sounds a moment later.

4: 41 pm Simba lays down. Just before he did he appeared to need to vomit again but I didn't see anything come out.

Thank you Maddy. Sorry but I was busy there for a bit.

4:56 pm It looks like Simba could be in a crouched position. Can't be sure at this angle.

5:10 pm Shadow is still with Simba. He didn't mean to knock Simba over. Think he landed on his tail. Startled Simba. Shadow is sitting with him now and I think that is very sweet.

6:23 pm Mrs BB goes to the exit branch and flies off. Simba goes to lay down. To me he is still acting like he needs to either vomit or expel a pellet. The rat he ate was...oh my probably 3 days ago without going back to look. That should have already been expelled.

6:40 Simba is up and squeeing and there is no food left on the nest. This is heart breaking. He seemed ready for eat for Shadow.
