Good Evening, NestRiotSquadders!!
It was an almost riot on the nest today. So much went on I despair of including it all here. It started at dawn with Mom chasing one of the squirrels off the big branch across from the nest. Next came breakfish on the nest with Mom crashing the party about halfway through, knocking Dad off the nest and losing a wing feather in the process. Peace had possession of the food but Mom took it back and finished feeding the kids. Later in the morning a fish was delivered that Harmony thought was hers. Harmony and Mom battled over pieces of the fish and Harmony even swallowed the tail whole. Peace waited patiently and was rewarded by Mom as Harmony tried to consume a large piece she took from Mom. Some other small snacks (more fish and a gosling or baby duck) were delivered also. Next up on the menu was a defeathered duck (sorry, chatters, it was not a coot) with gray webbed feet. After consuming it one of the gray feet became the object of a tug-o-war between H&P. It was fun watching them vie for possession. Eventually one of the P’s came to the nest, ate the webbed foot and put an end to the contest for possession. In between all this eating Harmony and Peace had lots of time for wingersizing, beakering and general mayhem on the nest. Peace also honed her OSD skills with a small branch borrowed from Dad’s stash. All in all, it was a very busy Monday on the nest and a pleasure to watch.
On to the vids and pics!
