Baby studied the "out go".
Next: yell for more food.
What happened next took place very fast. Papa sitting on ground. Understandable because of thick humidity.
Baby still on limb.
Papa got up. My eyes saw something that stopped me cold. Get pictures! Papa came at me on the ground. An attack? Was I being perceived as a threat? Face-off? All I wanted were pictures of what I had seen. No. I was not a threat. Papa wanted the "leaf" that was by my feet, except that was no leaf. It was an astonishing insect masquerading as a leaf, young green praying mantis?, huge green grasshopper? I'm not a bug expert. Papa dared to come right to my feet to get this delicacy. He got the bug and flew off towards the section of trees where Amahl hangs out. Compare size of adult robin with this bug. HUGE bug. All of this happened in no more than 4 seconds.
Papa came back after a bit to resume food hunting for kids and then I could document what I'd seen. Papa also has an injured foot. I don't know when this happened. Papa's foot had been fine the previous day. I've checked all pictures from nesting period through fledging time. No injury to Papa's leg. Now he has an injury, same ankle injury as Amahl has, but that doesn't stop him from carrying out his duties, -finding food and feeding the kids. Strength for pulling out worms, good balance for feeding. It's interesting to see that even with damage like this life goes on.
My eyes didn't see this, but the camera caught it. Papa took a leak before delivering brunch. Or maybe it was a message to me?
