Indigo flies to the scrape and steals the prey from Rubus and Diamond!

13 November 2022

Greetings Everyone,

I did not expect that anything could match the banding and putting the sat pad on Port Lincoln’s largest female osplet, Zoe BUT, something did happen.

This afternoon at the scrape on the water tower at Charles Sturt University in Orange an event took place that no one believed would be possible yet – eventually but, not yet. Well, it happened.

Indigo saw Diamond fly to the scrape with prey. He would have heard Rubus screaming, too. Indigo flew into the scrape and took the prey. Indigo was obviously famished. Diamond and Rubus were in utter shock.

It is unclear how much prey Indigo has received from the parents but, this is wonderful – simply marvellous – as it means that both Rubus and Indigo are getting fed. From the way that Indigo grabbed and ate that prey – and we must remember that Indigo has never been aggressive like Rubus – it appears it might been awhile since he had a prey drop.

Very reassuring to see Indigo in the scrape. This means that he has the strength to fly at the angle to get into the scrape. It was a fantastic fly in. It also means that we might see Indigo get more food drops there.

Oh, just lovely. You do not need my narrative. Write your own!

Thank you so much for being with me. Please take care. I will be posting my Monday November 14th newsletter mid-afternoon. See you then!

Thank you Charles Sturt Falcon Cam and Cilla Kinross for your streaming cam where I took my screen captures.

    Thank you for the photos and the update on Indigo Mary Ann! Maybe this is what the parents want too is for indigo to come into the scape and be fed. I hope both get enough food. Little Rubus was shocked ! 💕💕
    See you soon Mary Ann and have a good Monday!
    Linda
