Good Evening, Fellow WildGourmands!!
Harmony and Peace spent the last day of the work week filling up on the copious food Mom and Dad brought to the nest. In the early morning for breakfish there was Mallard ALA Mom delivered to the delight of the kids. They consumed that with gusto and settled down for a nice warm day of wingersizing, guard duty, and napping to finish out the week. But at about 0845 a gosling that hadn’t quite realized it was supposed to be food (it was still alive) was also delivered. The kids, having been a little deprived in the food department yesterday, were happy to nosh on Gosling Tartare´. They polished off both meals so well that there was hardly any evidence to be seen by late morning arrivals to the nest. After their tiffin of immature goose the kids really went for a nap and flap kind of day. Harmony spent a lot of time nodding on the high perch and Peace made sure no one invaded the nest. Late afternoon Dad brought them a snack to quibble over and he retired to the low branch to take a well deserved nap of his own. BBC gave us some good close-ups of him trying to keep his eyes open. A little later Mom brought a northern pike for supper that disappeared quite handily also. And just for fun a large fish head was brought in for the kids to kick around the nest for a bit. They both had a go at it but soon lost interest. Not one to waste a snack Mom polished it off. As the evening progressed Harmony and Peace stood looking off into the sunset and all was quiet on the nest once again.
Razzle, our illustrious videographer, took the day off today so we will just have a selection of pics of the day.
I hope your Friday was as nice and comfortable as the one on the nest. If it wasn’t please spend the day with us tomorrow and let the eagles cheer you up!
See you there!
