From Cray's first video ...

Belle's stands in the nest looking all around
and the morning light shows us the area referred
to as the "brood patch" ... it is the area where the
eggs and chicks are incubated or brooded ... these
feathers look lighter in color compared to the rest
of Belle's coat feathers.

From Cray's third video not sure of the time possibly 830 am ... can hear kids playing in the area so assume it is nearly school time?

The resident male was very ambitious this morning; based on Cray's videos ... he was back and forth a few times and every time i think he brought more "sticks" Good Job Dad!

Cray it you can provide a time in your future videos that would be helpful for our journal here Thank You

Team Work ... they had separate ideas about where the new stick should go
was priceless watching them.

In the 6th video ...

Dad returns with more sticks; then Mom leaves only to return with a thick heavy branch ... Mom actually drops the branch on Dad it is priceless to watch. Dad has to do some shifting of his weight to get that big branch out from under his wing!

Here are some pictures from Cray's video

From Cray's video ... number 6

Belle moves her big stick.
She bumps Dad a few times so he nips
at her ... priceless interaction.

There is some conflict between the birds
as that big stick is moved to the front of the nest.

The birds likely scratch or squeeze each other as it
is moved and both birds react with "short calls" alerting
the other to stop and there is beak and nipping going on
back and forth as well.

Link to Cray's video for this interaction

Thanks again for the wonderful footage Cray Left thumb up
Perhaps you would like to share the videos ... on the chat below the cam ... so that everyone can see your videos.

That is one big stick

Dad finally has his say at the end of the video he grabs hold of that big stick.
Mom looks on as if to say ... okay Dad you can have it ... for now that is.
