Nest Update June 30, 2013 - A Sunny Mid-Years Eve

Good Evening, Fellow NestTanners!!

Sunday on the nest was Great! The sun shone, Harmony and Peace had food to eat and argue over, Razzle made us some vids including a blog exclusive one and there seemed to be a cam gnome around most of the day to give us some great close-ups (Thanks BBC!). The kids woke up and decided to emulate Dad and played keep-away and That Goes Here! with a stick in the nest. This went on for several autocam cycles so you know they got a good workout. Mom started the morning right with a fish for breakfish that Peace nailed with a flying leap from the branch. A short while later after an attempted steal or two by Harmony Mom arrived with a bird for Harmony to nosh on. Mom left and then made a nice return fly-in to share the nestovers with the kids. She really knows how to start a Sunday off right! The kids settled in for some napping and guard duty as the day turned warm and humid again. Mom showed up late afternoon with another great fly-in and a fish in her talons. Peace scored again (she is really good at food delivery grabs) and Harmony had to wait her turn again. H did a sneaky approach and scored a clean takeaway this time and finished off the fish. Early evening the cam gnome showed us a great close-up of both the kids feet and we could see that those “clown feet” were to be well respected. Harmony’s toes seemed to be thicker and fatter than Peace’s which led to speculation by the chatters that she truly is a female. Peace seemed a little pigeon-toed but that might just be a species resemblance. As darkness fell the lovely Sunday closed with a beautiful sunset and all was quiet on the nest.

On to the pics and vids of the day!

Did the kids inherit OSD or was it just play?? You decide!

And our blog exclusive vid of the day. Peace is trying to nap on the nest and Harmony seems to have a lot of energy as she wingersizes. Harmony is on the far edge of the nest when she decides she wants to be on the other side. She makes a flying (literally) leap over Peace to get there!
