M fly off toward front pines

H must not be close or she'd be on it! lol.

11.14 M returns to the nest - M is so smart.
He covered the prey with a palm frond

He hooked it with his talon and uncovered it, wonder if he'll come back and re-cover it lol.

Hope the frond stays in the nest, quite windy today. ENE at 14mph with gusts to 25mph

11.18 M fly off

12.01 Eagle in the upper tree - juvie ?? sub adult??
head and tail do not look all white. Might be the lighting.

12:03 when they turned their head to the side, it looked whiter.
Can't be Harriet, she would be down to the nest eating??

Think it's M watching for H

She is just standing on the nest, looks at the prey, kind of aerates a little.

12.49 H starts to work on the prey.

h has a bit of grass hanging from her beak

1.12 H still hasn't de-fured or eaten the prey, jut moved it and standing on it watchful of the area. I'm wondering if there isn't another perched nearby that she is being so reticent to begin.

She hasn't been vocal at all.

1.28 Large bird soaring above the poles

NEST ACTIVITY CONTINUED

2.23 ish H to the spike

2.30 M sto the nest with fluff and sticks

H drops down to the nest next to M

2:30 M brought a short big stick
Click on image to download

The prey has gotten a bit covered up lol

M wiggles down on the nest, H picking at the leftover fish skin I think. She may have moved the prey again but I didn't see it if she did.

2:37 These two are so funny. H never ate the prey and now that M stood over it, she is going to eat.
So I learned something new... they do not always gorge themselves whenever food is available ?

2:39 Harriet swallows the tail

2:42 Harriet gulps down the remainder of the prey. M is in the attic.

2:44 H to porch spike and then flies off, perhaps to the pond?

4.54 panning cam 2 and see no sign of our H and M yet.
