Lady Hawk - Just past midnight, the E's were awake on the nest - E18 does a wing stretch and then starts preening. All of a sudden E17 got spooked by something and jumps off the nest and lands on a branch right below the nest! E18 gets up and is watching E17 below. I did not see an owl or anything that might have caused E17 to get spooked - in regular time and slomo! E17 remained on the lower branch until the morning, Later in the day, E17 is on the nest working on a nestover at 3:17 when a gust of wind causes E17 to flip and do a somersault and almost get blown off the nest! E17 is quite the acrobat and grips the edge rails and has a good recovery! In regular time and slomo! Good job for hanging on E17!! Thank you for watching!
