Video of Fling and Fly treat #1 delivery by Mel

Mel brought Syd a treat - goes out, comes back in, bonds, leaves - Syd right behind him leaving WITH the treat in her mouth. Comes back a few minutes later - no treat.
Dunno if she ate it or returned it to the briarpatch ♥
Sydney brought her second treat back into the nest after she flew off with it. Is she building her pantry??
