A Morning Of Tandem Flights~Defending & Stick Gathering 10-27-16

It was an amazing morning watching Harriet and M15 so in sync with each other. They were together flying for branches, flying to secure their territory and moving sticks in the nest beside each other. This morning's activities point to a bond that strengthens each day. M15 also casts a huge pellet.

It looked like H was headed to the power poles but then she started vocalizing (she must have seen M coming with fish) and turned hard right making a beeline for the nest, landing in the attic. She dropped down after M landed with the fish.

8:52 M leaves the nest and H begins to eat the fish

8:56 M back to the nest with grasses

8:58 M leaves the nest - H continues to enjoy her fish

9:08 H is still in the nest devouring her fish gift

9:11 M returns to the nest with a clump of pine straw

9:17 H seems to be done eating and crosses the nest and feaks on the rail then hops to the porch.

10:45-49 lots of vocals then H drops to the nest and begins aerating

10:52 M joins her in the nest - both working the bowl

(H ate the small piece. H came while he was aerating the nest and grabbed the fish from beside him. He turned and took the fish (nicely) from H. M went to nest edge with fish and flew down low to the ground and out of cam view. H was still in nest when he left)

10:53 H leaves the nest

10:56 M leaves the nest - M took the rest of the fish with him
