Another Stellar Stick Day For M15~Mating In The Attic 10-29-16

More large sticks (M-7 & H-1) and grasses (M-2 & H-1) were added this am. Both can be seen flying at sticks, re-gripping sticks mid flight and M adding a 'small tree'. There is a wide range of vocalizations heard today from both. I love Harriet's cackle and M's "eaglet" voice. Mating occurred on the attic branch. What a nest and bond these two are building.

7:06am more vocals heard

SWFEC Nest Notes

October 30, 2016

Dedication and Teamwork

Harriet and M15 are working as a finely tuned team readying their beautifully constructed nest to welcome a new generation of eaglets. All signs point to them achieving their goal as they prepare. They both continue to find the materials needed for the nest as they maneuver through the pasture and the trees around the territory. Harriet was observed lying in the nest overnight. M15 takes his turn at checking the nest bowl looking very comfortable. M15 ramps up food deliveries to the nest which will prove crucial when eggs arrive. He provided a variety from fish to squirrel to opossum and waited for Harriet to arrive. Most times Harriet was right on his tail voicing her approval and being very appreciative of the meal. Bonding and mating are becoming more frequent. Harriet and M15 take turns watching over the territory and spending time away from it. They are a united front in defense of their property. These actions are good indicators that egg laying time may be drawing near.

M15 has become an impressive mate for Harriet and his skills as protector, provider and nest builder are serving her well. Harriet seems to have a sense of calm about her and she appears to have enormous trust in M15's loyalty.

Harriet and M15 continue to display their devotion to each other. All these actions ensure they will be dedicated parents to their soon to be arriving offspring.

NEST OBSERVATIONS CONTINUED

3.51 cam 2 zooms to church tree, I can't tell but looks like M may be perched there. Or it could just be an opening in the branches, to hard to tell with the wind movement.

Harriet is sure calling a lot.

3.55 M to the nest, H down to nest to join him

He brought prey of some kind

Squirrel I think

M left the nest, H took prey to porch I think

4.01 H didn't have the prey on the porch unless she dropped it, she flew off toward pond.

4.04 both H and M at the pond up away form the waters edge

One leaves the pond toward church

No surprise both have left the pond.

4.10 M on the lower branch outer end. H was on the nest and went to porch. 4.14 H joins M and an attempt at bonding, M goes up a branch, H follows.

another bonding takes place

4.20 Side by side, M on the left and H on the right.
