Nest Update June 6, 2013 - Typical Thursday!

Good Evening, Fellow RiparianResters!!

That’s what the kids were today. Resters. Harmony and Peace spent more time prone today than anything else. Oh, they got up for meals, the occasional wingwhap, a little nestorizing and some beak play now and then. But, most of the day was spent watching their world from their bellies. They had fish for breakfast (we really need to get them some bacon or sausage to start the day) and a small rabbit late morning. The pond area lost another small avian today (gosling again, that makes 8 now) so Harmony and Peace could have dinner late afternoon. In case you haven’t noticed the eagles are playing a new game. It’s called Nip the Toes and it goes like this. Dad brings some food to the nest. Mom rushes down to meet him and snatch the food away.The kids nip at the parents feet to see if the food tastes good. The funny thing about this game is Harmony and Peace now nip at Mom and Dad’s feet whenever they land whether they have food or not. Just trying to cover all the bases, I guess. As evening deepened the kids lay down again and watched as the stars came out and the light faded from the sky. All was well on the nest.

On to the vids and pics of the day.

Harmony decides that a cornstalk is hers and lets Mom know it.
