Good Evening, Fellow PanUnFans!!
The day on the nest was hot and sultry for Harmony and Peace today. 86˚ and lots of humidity makes for a day where you don’t want to do much except laze around and wait for it to end. Oh, they played a bit and made a few trips up the tree but it was mostly a blah day on the nest. I guess Wednesdays are supposed to be like that. Early on they both had a go at inspecting the cam mount and trying to tune in a different program. We should all hope they don’t like the taste of wiring! About midafternoon Mom brought in the first ruffed grouse I have seen on the nest. Guess that means the river is too muddy right now for good fishing. Peace got the dibs on the grouse but Harmony scored a clean takeaway and then shared a bit of it with Peace. Harmony filled her crop and Peace waited patiently until she could sneak a bit of it away later. They both had a pretty good meal from it. During one of the pans a large arachnid decided he wanted a piece of the limelight and waltzed across the lens when we were looking at the pond. Luckily he didn’t stay long or we might have had to call the paramedics. The rest of the day it was back to lazing around and watching the cam pan, both the chatters and the eagles. Peace likes to stand on the branch spot and look right in the cam now when it pans back to her. What a Diva! As darkness fell one of the parents was spotted gliding over the pond. Razzle made us a blog exclusive vid of it. Thanks, Razzle, for all you do for us! After the screen was black the P’s were heard on the nest and lots of squeeing commenced. We infer the kids got a late supper that will help them sleep the night away.
Late afternoon the mods conducted a poll in the chat room and asked the question: Do you like the autopans that BBC is doing? We asked for a one word, yes or no, answer. It’s amazing how long a short word like yes or no can be sometimes. LOL The results of the poll were 33 in favor of the pans and 47 opposed.
On to the pics and vids of the day!
