Nest Update June 5, 2013 - Wacky Wednesday

Good Evening, Fellow WingWhappers!!

Wednesday on the nest was quite a bit more lively the the previous day. Rain threatened early but spared the nest area. There was even talk of a slight chance of tornados but nothing ever came of it. Wish those weather guys could be more accurate. Harmony and Peace started their day with another aquatic denizen for breakfish. After noshing on fish they had a little OSD contest with a stick from the rails. Mom brought some new mattress stuffing to the nest and Harmony practiced food grabbing by biting Mom’s toes on the way in. The kids helped spread it out and stomp it down and then proceeded to try it out. It seemed to be working for them as their naps were long and tranquil. They also took care of the rest of their to-do list for the day. They sunned, exercised, ate, tried on some fish scale bling, fixed up a rail, and a few more things. Late afternoon Dad came in with another avian snack and Mom practically raced him to the nest to receive it. She gave the kids a demo of a perfect mantle as Dad skedaddled out of there. A little bit later Dad delivered a nice fish and again she raced him onto the nest. She must have been really hungry today. The kids topped up their crops and got ready for bed. As darkness fell they were sleeping peacefully and Mom was vigilant nearby.

On to the pics and vids!
