Nest Update June 29, 2013 - A Singularly Simple Saturday

Good Evening, Fellow SleepyNesters!!

The 1st day of the last weekend of June was an effortless and undemanding day on the nest. Harmony and Peace were both on the nest with a parent as the cam came back on about 1130 am. The parent left as the cam panned away and the kids were left to their own devices again. They again split the duty as one laid down to nap in the nest and one took the high post up on the branch. A few hours later Mom brought a small duckling to the nest for a snack. Peace scored it as Harmony was on the branch when it arrived. Harmony came down and watched Peace eat for a bit and then wrestled it away. Peace let Harmony finish it and did a real nice fly-up to the branch. A few hours later Harmony was sleeping on the nest and Peace was bored so she dropped down from the high post and tried to get Harmony to play. Harmony was having none of that so Peace decided to kick her in the head. It really looked like she did it deliberately!

Peace flapped around for a bit more then went back to napping on the branch. Mom brought another small duckling that Harmony grabbed as it hit the nest. She noshed on it for a while until Peace grabbed it in a bold drop down move from the branch. Harmony countered with a sliding spin move of her own and reclaimed the snack. Peace retreated back up the tree and that was about all the action there was for today. Night fell with our 2 hungry eaglets waiting for a dinner that never arrived.

Razzle is on sabbatical this weekend so we just have some pics for you today. Might even throw in a few retros from earlier in the season!
