Lady Hawk - 1.10.20 ~ It all begins with M15 on the grass near the pond (Muscovy duck entourage is close by!) He grabs a stick on the ground & flies back to the nest with it. M is in a stick frenzy - trying to place it! E14 sees his tail swishing his face and tries to nip at it lol At 6:45 Dad accidentally steps on E14 but pulls his foot back. E14 let him have it with a scream and open beak! He continues to work on that stick and then he steps right on E14's head!! Oh my - poor baby!! E14 was a bit shell shocked. Slomo is at 7:04. E14 is okay - the eaglets at 3 weeks old are quite resilient. Dad then flies up to the attic and Harriet takes over with the stick placement. E14 is watchful and ducks when she moves a big stick towards him just in time. E14 tries to move under Mom but then oops...Harriet steps on E14 too at 10:56. E14 is not having a good day!! :) M will hop back down to the nest and he & Harriet resume their stick placement - Harriet will fly to the attic and M will finally finish!! Thank you for watching!
