Mating - Note how Dad's talons are curved in sideways so they don't dig in Mom's back

Good Morning All

Christine, I had found on the last iOS update for the iPad that the jpeg images were now stored as PNG files, which is probably because Apple is upgrading their internal cameras. Our forum won't accept PNG files. I downloaded an App called JPEG - PNG so that I can convert the images to jpeg when I need to use them on the forum .
It does mean an extra step to get an image prepared but it does work.



Thanks, Judy. I knew there was something going on. I cannot seem to keep up with the updates. I will check out the app.

Ernie, you are so right about the stick. Why would someone put it across the middle of the box? I also think it was tied in place so it could not be moved.

Hope everyone had a most wonderful Easter weekend.....

--just popping in to see how the nest building is going with that large diagonal stick
that has cut everything in half for our special family.
Well, they've been busy!! thank you all for the fantastic pics and updates.
The snow melted by noonish.....it was a nice, sunshiny day, with just a little nippy breeze.

Here is the nest at dusk....8:56 pm is the time on my computer....lol.

Good morning All

6:40 a.m.
The nest is getting bigger but the bowl looks as if it's going to be a tight squeeze being on this side of the big stick. It is so close to the rim of the box that I'll be worrying about a chick falling out once they are big enough to crawl around.

Dad pushes and shapes the grass in the bowl with his breast.

Mom flew off but Dad remained watching the river. She returned a minute later.
