Osprey Chick Plays Tug-O-War With Female Over Fish Delivery
Watch one of the chicks attempt to claim an early-morning fish delivery for itself at the Savannah nest. After a short tugging match, the female puts a stop to it and begins to divvy up breakfast to her nestlings. Now that they are all around 40 days old, the three chicks will begin to feed on their own, taking prey from the male as he lands at the nest or from the female after she has fed.
