Good morning Everyone.
Thank you Enmax for correcting the time on the clock. This will make it so much easier to keep track of things, especially for you BET when you are recording.

5:53 a.m

6:28 a.m.
Dad has been back and forth to the nest bringing in more soft material for the bowl. Mom prefers to stand watching the river .

7:40 a.m.
Nothing much to report over the past hour. Dad has stopped in a few times and Mom has been on the nest the either gazing at the river or doing a bit of nest fluffing.

10:00 to 12:30

Mom spent a lot of time standing around while Dad flew back and forth with nest material, sticks, bark and yucking looking wet weeds.

At 9:54 they went on alert. Dad mounted Mom but did not attempt mating - just glared up at the sky and then flew off. He returned at 10:21 and did mate.

11:27 - Mom still on the nest when Dad came screeching in landing on Mom's back (note his talons curled in)

He slid off and they both started tracking the unseen Mom screeching

Their heads turning and turning following the unseen intruder - usually in perfect synchronization

Dad left. Mom left for a short while. Returned - soon followed by Dad and another mating at 12:29

DAd brought in a long strip of bark. Both O's worked on trying to break it down. Ended up - so far as side rails and one through the middle

6:50 a.m.
Finally when it looked as if he was going to leave with it she took it from him. She flew off with it and Dad remained to work on the nest. At 6:55 a.m. he flew off.

While Mom is away Dad has been doing his work by packing down the nest. He decided to lay this way for a moment to rest. He is such a character. Can't help but love him.
