Nest Observations


Wskrsnwngs:
6:00 I am at the nest. There is one adult perched in the outer attic.
6:30 No vocals yet.

7:09 Adult flies SE and out of sight.

8:05 adult in with stick. Think M.

8:18 it is H, not M. She just vocalized.

8:58 Harriet is tracking west. To nest edge. 9:00 H Flies toward west pasture, back and forth by tree line and down behind, out of sight.

8:25-8:35 one eagle flies in to west pasture tree then over to pasture pond. Evidently was Flushed from the pond area by eager photographer and flew low from pond over to church tree.

8:42 looks like Harriet. Wings out, breeze drying her feathers out.

9:55 it is Harriet. She is preening with her wings only partially out now. I am headed home.

10:37 looks like someone is in the attic

10:38 both to the nest - one in with a stick I believe

10.42 M fly off to right

10:43 M back with moss

10:47 Both spread the material about the nest some,
M watchful, tracking something. M goes to the attic

10.49 M leaves the attic

11.04 M with a big stick, both work on placement

11.04 H leaves the nest

lol it is fun to watch them place those sticks

11.06 M goes to the porch, H returns to the nest

M to the attic branch

she will move that stick

lol she is SO funny, okay over here,no over there, ah maybe just right now. no over here............
Click on image to download

must be a hard one to place. i can see lots of spots it would fit into

she is slowly breaking pieces off of it

I have no doubt it will end up just right for her at some point, enjoying the chuckles though Smile

maybe she finally placed it

um maybe not LOL

looked like she just tried jumping on it to break it

She may be content with the new location of that stick now. Maybe.
M remains on the attic branch and H on the nest still at 11.28.
Thank You SWFEC Team for all your observations!!

One adult was in the nest tree before daylight this am, flying SE at 7am. Later Harriet arrived with a stick, preened, vocalized and watched the area. She flew west out of sight and returned later, flying to the pond for a bath and dried off in the church tree.
