Nest Update May 31, 2013 - A Wing Waving Friday

Good Evening, Fellow Flapadoodles!!

The day on the nest started sunny and calm with a tasty fishy for breakfish. Harmony and Peace got a sort of slow start on this last day before the weekend but things picked up later in the day. First one would wingersize and crash and then the other would try with the same result. Mom or Dad would sit on the nest with them as it was very windy at times. Lunch was delivered in the form of a rabbit so we get to watch another pair of rabbits feet wander around the nest. Dinner was something else furry and was consumed quickly. As dusk deepened the first drama of the season unfolded. A raccoon, in search of a nice meal, climbed up and poked his head over the edge of the nest. Ever vigilant, Mom was there in a flash to show the raccoon the error of his ways. The raccoon disappeared from view and was not seen again this evening. He may have fallen or he may have just skedaddled when he saw those talons coming his way. We may know in the morning if we see a coon tail on the nest for breakfish. Either way I hope we don’t see another one this season. Or at least until the kids can defend themselves.

On to the pics and vids!
