The male returned, and began cleaning the feathers off of the carcass. Once done, he then called out again and the female returned. She quickly accepted the meal this time and like before, as soon as she began eating, the male returned and mated with her.
Due to the location of the nest site, and the impending foliage that was growing thicker every day, I soon lost sight of the nest and could no longer observe them. The thick canopy of the trees prevented any further study of the nest and this wonderful pair.
