6/8, Grant's Tomb

Another two days later, and it seems that the although the Grant's Tomb baby hawks are of an age to fledge the nest, they're in no hurry to do so.

Friday evening, it was again a case of one nestling perched on the railing above the nest whilst the other two lurked on the nest platform. I'm told that earlier in the day, two were spotted perched on the railing at the same time.

A parent must have appeared in the nestlings' field of view, as around 7:30, they got very attentive to the north and a solo, sometimes duet of begging cries began.

But despite 10 or 15 minutes of such screeching, there were no food deliveries before I made my exit.
