Nest Update May 27, 2013 - A Memorial Monday

Good Evening, Fellow Rememberers!!

As Memorial Day dawned cloudy and a little breezy at the nest I hope you took the time to remember all those who were and are important in your lives and to honor all veterans past, present and future who lay down their lives and their sacred honor to protect the freedoms we enjoy. As a veteran myself I honor all those, no matter which service they have chosen, that have made the choice as I did and defend this country at all costs. We enjoy our freedom because men and women such as these stand ready to defend us at a moments notice. The least we can do is acknowledge the debt we owe them and give them the respect they deserve. Please remember them in your thoughts every day.

The day on the nest of our national symbol was calm and relaxed again today. Harmony and Peace had a breakfish of fish followed by goslings (sorry mom and dad goose) that I heard was a little hard to watch them eat. Mom brought the kids a fish to play with and left without feeding them any. They moved the fish around and tried to peck at it without much success. They finally gave up and used it for a pillow. Mom returned a couple of hours later and fed them the fish. It also seemed to be a day of two’s. Dad landed first late in the day with a large fishy and mom landed a minute later with one of her own. Harmony and Peace got individual attention as dinner was served. Both were fed by a parent and were stuffed until they could hardly move. As night fell on the nest there was Peace and Harmony snoring the night away.

On to the vids and pics of the day.
