4:58 pm Shadow flew off and Mrs BB wants to help. Simba is just screaming!!!

5:00 pm This is just mind boggling. Mrs BB is feeding Simba. He's very capable of feeding himself. I've never seen a nest where the adults have spoiled one of Simba's age before. Mrs BB and Shadow continue to spoil him.

5:05 pm Mrs BB is now on the exit branch. Simba is finally eating his fish by himself.
