SWFEC Nest Notes Extra: Honoring M15 on Father’s Day

2022-06-19 13:52:11 GMT

M15 has become a finely seasoned Eagle Dad to his offspring over the last seven years. He offers unyielding support from the start of each Season with nest building, incubating and tending to eggs, feeding young Eaglets, and teaching fledglings by example. M15 is an exceptional hunter and a fierce protector keeping his family safe and secure. He remains loyal and devoted to his partner Harriet, and their bond is unfailing.

As the Seasons wind down, M15 and Harriet retreat to their well-deserved downtime. They will prepare to begin the cycle again and rededicate themselves to foster new life in the pasture. M15 and Harriet have reared 13 Eaglets to fledge and carry their legacy into the Eagle world. M15 deserves top honors on Father’s Day and all days in between. Nest Notes by dadsjazz
