Nest Update May 30, 2013 - A Torpid Thursday (Or How I Started My Summer Vacation)

Good Evening, Fellow NestGrads!!

Well, this day marks blog 90 in the continuing saga of the MN Bound Nest. We have had our share of highs and lows and we will continue to bring you the story of our eaglets Harmony and Peace until someone tells us to stop. Some of the classes that have been following us are now out of school for the summer and we hope their teachers gave them the URL of the nest so they can still follow along. We congratulate all those done with school on completing another year of learning and hope you have a good summer. For those still in school, hang in there, summer is coming soon. Harmony and Peace continued their schooling with an eye toward graduating sometime in July. A successful fledge marks their matriculation into juvenile eaglehood. Mom and Dad will take them through eagle graduate school after fledge and teach them the eagle secrets that will let them survive on their own in the wild. It is an intense course of instruction but I have confidence both of our eaglets will pass with flying colors. 

The day on the nest was fairly uneventful. Breakfish was something feathered (duck or coot we think) and its a good thing they ate well as nothing more was brought to the nest until dinner time. H&P passed the day sleeping, wingersizing, growing, and doing all the things eaglets do. Dinner consisted of a very large mystery fish that was consumed with great gusto. The kids both tried to feed themselves with Harmony taking a big lead on that. The cam went down for a bit after supper and when it came back up Mom’s head was all dirty like she had been renovating the nest again. As darkness covered the nest Mom came and went a few more times finally leaving the eaglets in peace.

On to the pics and vid!
