Lady Hawk - Harriet is awake on the nest when she sees something moving - it is a snake! She immediately goes into defensive mode with wings outstretched and she wing slaps it and then stomps at it with her talons! The snake slithers off the nest. In regular time and slomo! The snake looks to be harmless but Harriet is not taking any chances with her eggs. The eggs are okay and she did not step on them while she was getting rid of the snake. Harriet remains watchful for a few minutes and checked around the nesting material to make sure it was gone before she laid back down to incubate. Don't mess with Momma! Thank you for watching!
