Nest Update June 13, 2013 - First Day Of Summer?

Good Evening, Fellow WingSunners!!

Thursday on the nest was a great day to be an eaglet. Well, except for the absence of food that is. The cam was down as the sun came up so we missed seeing breakfish if there was one. When the cam did come up about 8:20am BBC treated us to some quick pans of the area. Harmony and Peace seemed to have decently filled crops so we infer they did get something for breakfish. But we can only infer. After the plethora of food deliveries yesterday and the day before we were not expecting a day with none. Yep, no food was delivered to the nest today nor were there any visits by the parents. None. Zero. Zip. Nada. The kids had a full day on their own for the first time and they had some fun and some clashes as they enjoyed the sunny day. They lazed about in the sun for most of the day and gave the chatters a nice full wing display and sent a BatSignal to Mom and Dad for a food delivery. Alas, the BatSignal is hard to see in daylight and no food was forthcoming. Along about 4:30pm Harmony decided she had enough of Peace’s playfulness and Nest Rumble 3 started. It lasted for about 15 seconds and ended with Peace standing very puzzled in the middle of the nest. A wingersizing contest ensued with no clear winner but lots of shots to each others heads. Lots of late afternoon and early evening squee’s were heard as the kids let Mom and Dad know they were hungry. At least one parent heard them as they were heard on a branch nearby at about 5pm and later just before dark. Darkness fell on the nest with Peace and Harmony trying to get to sleep with less than full crops.

On to the vids and pics of the day!

Wings galore as Peace and then Harmony spread ‘em for the crowd.

Do you think this will work??? Food doesn't come when Mom does it.
