Countdown to a New Year

As the last day of 2013 dawns, Mom and babies are snuggled safely in their nest. Harriet takes an early morning stretch and quick flight then back to the nest. Dad arrived to take over little E duties. Ozzie is a great Dad and tenderly cares for his young E’s. The nearly adult eagle who has been in the area over the past few days paid another visit to the nest today. Dad, the protector, went into full alert and mantled his precious babies while strong vocals were given to warn off the intruder. Ozzie kept his wings fully opened the whole time the intruder was in the nest tree. Eventually the young eagle left the nest tree and then the area.

The sweet little E’s had several good feedings by Mom and Dad. Harriet left the nest for less than a minute and returned with prey to feed the hungry babies. Ozzie delivered a small food object. Both Ozzie and Harriet were still on alert checking for any intruders while tending to their sweet E’s. Dad treated E4 to a private feeding to the point of a stuffed little E. As the New Year approached Ozzie paid a visit to the nest and his precious Harriet and babies.
