The parent sitting close by in a tree. I think she's wondering "Do I really want to go and get attacked by these hungry birds? Aren't they old enough now to go out on their own?"
"I'm next, I'm next."
"Yum, Mom's regurgitated food."
"I hate being last."
All grown up now.
A video of the babies begging for food. Mom was sitting in a tree nearby.
Four weeks after I saw the first speck of pink fuzz, I headed to the zoo again. When I first got there, the babies were just sitting on the nest. A few minutes later, they all jumped up and started begging. I looked around and saw that one of the parents had flown into the tree behind me. She sat there for a few minutes and then flew to the nest. I was excited I had arrived when an early lunch was just starting. The mom stayed for a while and then flew off, leaving the babies sitting around again. By then it was hot and my bug spray was wearing off so I headed home.
