Daddy Dearest

Have been watching a pair of peregrine falcons with 3 nestlings.  It’s fascinating.  The female is larger and seems to do most of the hunting, while the male sits on the three of them and keeps an eye on things.  She provides fresh meat, and then he rips it to tiny bits and puts it gently in their gaping maws.  No sound, so I can’t tell if they’re yapping at him.  He stops when they’re so full they can’t open their mouths any more, then he eats all the rest and if there’s something inedible, he removes it.

See it here!
