Good morning, everyone.

11:11 am
Shadow arrived with a large fish. Mom is calling. Simba is resting.

After a minute or two, Shadow started working on the fish, Simba got up and faced him, and Mom flew off. I missed Shadow moving the fish, but he brought it to the front. Simba was opening his beak but not calling that I could hear or reaching for food.

And then we had what I'm guessing is a photobomb by Mom - note the beak in the upper left corner.

It looked as if Simba was doing some self-feeding!

He/she is also doing some properly loud eaglet calls. Mom is in the nest with him/her now.

Thanks for your posts, Maddy!

Mom has gone back to her perch, and Simba is looking around.

Mom has flown off. Simba is up and preening - which I think is a very good sign!

Simba appeared to do a ps but wasn't where I could see how much or what color. Then he did a bit of flapping with a couple of nice hops!

He's lying down now, but looking alert.

Shadow just arrived with some pine needles and Simba rushed him, looking for food - and seemed annoyed to learn that there wasn't any. I know it's Shadow's job to work on the nest - and he probably isn't looking for advice from me - but I think this would be a good time for him to bring another fish. :love:

2:50 pm Looks to be a bit overcast today. Which is good and should help keep Simba cooler. He's been standing at the left for a while now.

3:01 pm The wind is picking up. Simba is squeeing. Good to actually hear the sounds.

3:15 pm Simba is looking around quite a bit. Several small birds flying around the nest. He's still up and that is a good sign.

Rita, I didn't see many bites, but he did get something. Why don't they leave him a fish? Or they know that he is not going to eat it? It is happening every day.
4:11 pm mom finished the fish

Well Maddy I think the lesson here is that he needs to learn to self feed. Hold the fish down and eat it! It's time for him to do so. No matter what that was very hard to watch.

4:19 pm Simba is looking to the left. Mrs BB is perched on the exit branch now. All we can do is hope that Shadow comes through for him before night fall.

5:02 pm Simba just changed positions by a little bit. Peeps now and then. Good to hear those and not the silent ones.

5:13 pm Simba is up and does a ps but those are hard to catch. It was a yellowish color again, but it looked wet. Let's hope he's feeling better.
