Baby birds scream until they are too full to move. So an osprey chick with a full stomach is quiet.
Red Eye is so full she can focus on grooming. But there is still an osprey survival lesson in progress. Mom retrieved the scrap of fish Red Eye didn’t finish in the nest, brought it up to her favorite eating branch and is now demonstrating that there was more food to be had from Red Eye’s discards.
Red Eye is observing mom’s thoroughness. Maybe next time there will be fewer left-overs for mom.
