Aspro with attitude

Days 33-35 Aspro is starting to shed his baby look and fledge into proper juvenile plumage, has been doing a lot of wing stretching and flapping and is developing quite an attitude.  He has been grabbing the food, shielding it from and even showing agression to his parents, and doing quite a bit of the eating himself.   I’m saying himself, but am still not sure of gender – I’ll wait till I get Aspro and Beau together on the ledge to compare heights.

Aspro hungry
Aspro hungry

 

Aspro squabbling over a starling breakfast
Aspro squabbling over a starling breakfast
Aspro grabs Beau's leg
Aspro grabs Beau’s leg
And won't let go!
And won’t let go!
