Weekly Nest Notes: Exchanging Places (March 10)

2020-03-11 01:35:01 GMT

Harriet and M15 kept up their efficient exchanges incubating their treasured Eggs through the week. As one arises to stretch and take a break from nest duty the other is on the spot to take their turn. They while away the hours on the nest watching the comings and goings in the vicinity. This is their second go-around of incubating Eggs this Season and in a few weeks, their consistent commitment will reveal the fruits of their labor.

Harriet and M15 appear especially sensitive to visitors in the territory. They belted out vocal warnings to a beautiful Sub-Adult Eagle who landed in the nest tree top perch and quickly got the message that their presence was unwanted.  Fly-through only, no stopping is their shout out to the Osprey, Hawk and all other birds in their territory. The Starlings enjoy perching in the nest tree singing their songs but they are too small to pose a threat. They build their nests under Harriet and M15’s nest at times stealing materials from them.

Harriet and M15 managed to spend moments together to keep their bond intact and solid. They spend their time away from the nest soaring the skies, hunting for a meal and enjoying a refreshing bath. They take their roles in stride faithful to each other and their intentions of raising another generation of Eagles.  Nest Notes by dadsjazz
