Good Evening, Fellow NestPointillists!!
....With Harmony and Peace. The day was much like the day in the painting in that lots seemed to be happening but not much really was. Mom brought an appetizer for breakfish ( a small bird, we think) and it’s thought that Slick Talons Peace may have lost it over the side again. So Mom went shopping again and came back about 0930 with a relative of the nest intruder of a few weeks ago. Harmony took delivery this time and proceeded to de-fur and nosh on the raccoon. Peace arrived soon after it was delivered and tried for a steal that was rebuffed by Harmony. Peace gave it a few more attempts but they were not aggressive until they had a tug-o-war. Harmony won that one but soon after there was a bigger tug-o-war that Harmony won also. Peace finally made a steal and nibbled down what was left. The pelt lay in the nest for a half hour until Mom returned with a tasty fishy. Peace scored that and Mom consumed the leftover raccoon pelt. Harmony stole the fish (Surprise!) and Peace watched and waited until she was finished with it. Peace had fish brain salad for lunch and then it looked like she lost the skull overboard again. Should’ve named her Fumble Talons McGee. The good thing is they both had full crops after a morning of food deliveries by Mom. The kids played in the tree near the nest for a bit and then flew off to parts unknown for the rest of the day. As darkness fell a loud boom was heard and we could hear them return to the near vicinity of the nest. Things settled down after dark and all was quiet on the nest.
On to the pics and vids of the day!
