11 Sticks/Moss Added In 1 Hour~H & M Show Great Gathering Techniques 10-14-16

As the sticks and mosses were added by M and H, they give us insight into how they acquire the materials needed for a suitable new nest. We watch as they grab, fly at and hang with the materials. Then their flight back to the nest shows us how they re-grip, transfer from beak to talons and hold the material. What a feat building a nest from scratch with only beaks and talons.

It Takes Work Getting The Big Sticks Home 10-15-16

This morning was a very good example of eagle strength, intelligence and determination to build a suitable nest for eggs and eaglets. Although all 9 sticks that were added were large, Harriet tackled the two largest, losing one but adding the other. The choosing of kind of stick, grabs, flights and landings were all well accomplished, but Harriet's big stick addition was amazing to watch.

Harriet's first big stick pulls her to the ground and she is unable to get it back off the ground

Harriet detours to a front pine to re-group and re-grip her big stick before successfully getting it "home"
