M15 and F23 have been diligently caring for their cherished Eggs. They endure many hours of incubating and tending to them. M15 and F23 perform perfect exchanges, tenderly roll the Eggs, and aerate the nest bole to give it a warm, soft feel. They go to great lengths to safeguard these precious packages that contain their future legacy.

M15 and F23 are on constant guard for any perils that may come their way. M15 has stood guard many nights and has been struck by the owls nesting in the West pasture. Sub-adult Eagles visited the nest from time to time and received stern warnings from M15 and F23. They have taken care of each other in endearing ways. When the severe wind and rain storms blew through the area, they lay side by side in the nest, protecting the eggs and one another from the elements. M15 delivers food gifts for F23, who eagerly takes the gifts away from the nest to enjoy.

M15 and F23 remain dedicated to presenting new life in the pasture. The time draws near for this to come to fruition. In about two weeks, M15 and F23 will hopefully begin the next part of their new journey. All hope is for healthy, feisty Eaglets for M15 and F23 to raise as they become an exceptional Eagle Family.
