Our beautiful nestlings are getting stronger and stronger and are even beginning to stand at times when feeding or moving in the nest bowl. This afternoon was kind of odd with prey being delivered and taken off (tweets from this afternoon copied below). But the nestlings ate well, and it was another good day in cornellhawks land!

14:50, 4/30 Mom and dad are back with a long snake. They check on the kids and both fly off again. Storm Prep here in #cornellhawks land?

14:55, 4/30 That was odd. Old chippie and new snake both removed from the nest, parents out again. It's a mysterious day in #cornellhawks

15:05, 4/30 Curiouser and curiouser. BR returns with partly eaten snake, Ezra drops off a chippie. BR stays, Ezra goes. Life goes on.

15:05 4/30. It's cardio-tweeting here, as BR leaves again with the partly eaten snake she recently returned to nest. What's next? Come see!

15:26, 4/30. BR is back, drops off stick, removes remains of a chippie, it's nonstop action this afternoon in #cornellhawks land!

16:36 4/30 EZ flies in to check on family then flies off to continue hunting. Mom decides to feed Chippie for an early supper #cornellhawks

16:42 4/30 When EZ came in he did bring in a new chippie. But BR is feeding the nestlings the older chippie #cornellhawks

16:58 4/30 BR arrives and the nestlings wake right up hoping for a snack. BR is happy to oblige with some leftover vole! In #cornellhawks
