Weekly Nest Notes: Double Duty Teamwork

Harriet and M15 have been on a steady pace constructing a secondary nest. Over the seasons, Harriet has taken sticks to a tree in the West pasture. This Season, she added a substantial amount there, and a proper nest began to take shape. Since the Female Eagle rules the roost, M15 joined her in the Nest 2 project. Harriet’s interests now seem to be on the original nest prompting M15 to turn his sights there. Harriet enjoyed fish and opossum meals she brought to the nest and also the gifted… Read More »Weekly Nest Notes: Double Duty Teamwork

Weekly Nest Notes: Comforts of Home- Oct. 12

M15 and even Harriet presented food and E15 took them up on their offerings. Surprisingly, Mom and Dad are feeding their capable Juvenile Eagle. E15 did manage to “hunt” a few items including a frog on his/her own. E15 is in no hurry to leave the area and may stay as long as food is easy… Read More »Weekly Nest Notes: Comforts of Home- Oct. 12
