Harriet and M15 concentrated their efforts on their original nest over the week. It seems as if they have chosen it to keep as the home for their new family. M15 worked at record speed bringing in sticks for the rails and soft material for the bowl. He tests out the nest bowl regularly and adjusts the amount of fluff needed. Harriet perched on the attic branch, gave orders, and dropped into the nest to add her touches. Their frequent bonding is a sure sign that Eggs are on the way soon.
Harriet and M15 began the early mornings perched in the nest tree. After working on renovations, M15 would dash off on the hunt for food. He came through as the master provider delivering three prey items in one day for ravenous Harriet. He keeps his Lady well nourished. They remained close by throughout the days and roosted together overnight in the nest tree. The home front is kept secure and intruder free as they offer unwanted visitors a vocal warning and an escort out of the area. Harriet flew off to “yell” at the neighbor Eagle perched on the edge of the property. Harriet and M15 are extra sensitive and territorial at this time as they prepare for coming events.
Harriet and M15 have experienced a year of many twists and turns as one Season evolved into another. They adapted to Eagle life and persevered through the challenges. Their work together as a finely tuned pair will enable them to forge onward. Harriet and M15’s unbreakable commitment to each other ensures their survival and that of their future offspring.
