A few more s'caps from the 2nd video this afternoon. Mom gets up off the chick and snaps at Dad. She settles on the chick to brood and keeps a close eye on poor Dad who wants to see his chick Sad

I recorded 2 videos today from 11:24 to 11:59 am. Dad Sisquoc came in to feed the chick, Mom Shatash came over but Dad didn't want her there so she nipped him Oh My They got into a bit of a scuffle, left the chick alone for a few minutes then Mom came back in to feed and brood the chick.

Video Camera Condormania!!
