The male left the nest on the 27th , returned on the 1st and pinned down and broke the wing of one of the chicks , the male almost gave a ritualistic cry before the act. Themother sat on the ledge , quite in different. The bleeding chick
screaming and to its mother for help.
He then proceeded to eat it , 2nd he continued with eating the dead chick . Hours later , the mother returned to the nest and buried the dead chick , nope not out ceremony, just so the male can eat it later. She has become quite indifferent to the living chick , hope she is not planning to abandon the nest, and let the male kill the second chick. Sure I know, survival of the fittest, but there was no way that chick was not fit to grow, to be a full adult. It was almost cannibalistic.
