I have been gone most of the day but checked in on Rachel and the chicks this evening and it is reassuring to see Rachel feeding a chick again. I read that bonking by the older chick has started so that’s why the younger chick is cowering on the other side of the nest. It’s normal for this to happen in nature but still doesn’t make it easy to witness it.

I’m worried about Rachel and hoping time will help heal her injury but only time will tell. ♥

I hate seeing Rachel in trouble, I have known her so many years and she is a beautiful Osprey and mother !
