Today marks 9 days for hatch watch to begin. It was just a few short weeks ago that all were elated about the laying of these precious eggs. Now anticipation is building for the arrival of Ozzie and Harriet’s adorable hatchlings. The day was a bit cooler at the nest and Ozzie and Harriet did a great job of keeping the eggs warm and cozy. Ozzie brought Harriet a fish for lunch for which she vocalized her pleasure. Ozzie was the protector voicing his warning to some large birds soaring overhead.
Harriet spent time at the pond and perched in a tree behind the church next to the nest area in the afternoon and again in the early evening. Both Ozzie and Harriet seem to spend most of their time close to the nest. Harriet returned to the nest to tuck in her precious eggs just after sunset.
