Harriet and M15 added another treasure to the nest with the delivery of Egg #2 laid on November 23. They immediately proceed to share the new task at hand of continuous incubation. They have their timing well synchronized. When one arrives, the other flies off to have time for themselves. For the next 35 or so days, the Eggs will be in a constant state of care as Mom and Dad turn and roll them and keep the nest fluffed up and warm. The Holiday Season may be a celebration of new life in the pasture.
Harriet and M15 are seasoned Eagle Parents committed to their responsibilities. Their offspring depend on their incredible teamwork. M15 continues to deliver sticks and grass for nest maintenance. Harriet caught and enjoyed her meal, as well food gifts from M15. An unidentified food object was spotted in the pasture by M15 and the vultures in the area. M15 and Harriet ate from the large carrion along with the vultures. The action was intense at first, then they all dined on the meal showing their interdependent relationships in the wild. It is an example of the possibilities for juvenile Eagles to find food on their journey as they learn hunting skills.
Harriet and M15 have excelled in caring for their precious Eggs to hatching and rearing their young. They are devoted to their goal and are well on the way in the process. All hope is for healthy and thriving Eaglets who will inherit the best of their devoted Parents. Nest Notes by dadsjazz
