11:29 snake leaves

11:38 The snake is back - has another look around the nest and leaves again.

It's a Black racer like a garter snake not poisonous but is sometimes aggressive

They climb trees to avoid danger but out of the frying pan into the fire in this case. Could be lunch!

Snakes head higher when there is lots of rain. Could be many of the snake holes are still filled with water.
Thank You SWFEC team for all your observations!!

Teamwork~Adding Sticks & Getting Crib Rails In Place 10-08-16

Harriet and M15 added and placed 17 sticks in 1.5 hours. They spent much of the remainder of the time, alone and together, shaping the crib rails. You will see them fly at and grab, transfer beak to talons, hang to break a stick and break off bits of some sticks to "fit". The nest looks awesome.

SWFEC Nest Notes

Sunday, October 9, 2016

Weathering the Storm

Harriet and M15 have been steadily at work in the early mornings constructing their new nest which has grown tremendously in size. In a little over one month the nest looks inviting and nearly ready for eggs. An impending storm halted production briefly. Harriet and M15 had not been seen in the territory the day before the storm was predicted to arrive. Studies have shown that wildlife have instinctual abilities to stay out of harmís way. They may have filled up on food and sought protection from the approaching storm. Fortunately the stormís impact was not severe but it brought rain and wind. Harriet and M15 were back the next morning looking well fed with full crops ready to protect the nest. They each delivered a few sticks spending most of the day watching over their territory. Their intricate work proved sturdy and the nest held fast through the stormy conditions.

Mornings were back on track as Harriet and M15 greeted the beautiful sunrises and resumed construction. Their branch choices and aerial acrobatics in capturing these branches are amazing to see. They fly at the tree and grab the branch that sometimes doesnít break. They have ended up hanging upside down for a few seconds, releasing and flying away. A lot of grasses and moss have been added and the nest bowl is taking shape. Both were observed lying in the nest bowl to test it out. M15 is showing great skills as a nest builder. Harriet adds her favorite fresh pine branches. Their work together has been an engineering feat. Harriet still wants the last word in stick placement and the two have had a few discussions. M15 stands his ground but Harriet usually wins.

Evening hours find Harriet and M15 in the pasture visiting the pond or perching together in the nest tree or one of their other favorite trees as the sun sets on another busy and productive day.
