Nest Update July 15, 2013 - Peace Smartens Up 

Good Evening, Fellow NestGenii!!

An interesting Monday on the nest. It started with Dad delivering a small aquatic avian for breakfish. Peace scored it and started to eat. She heard Harmony coming to the nest and instead of just trying to mantle and eat, Peace actually did the smart thing. She grabbed the prey in her talons and FLEW AWAY! Way to go Peace! Kinda makes one wonder if all that food lost over the side was just a ploy?? She certainly played it right today. Harmony just stood there with a look of wonderment on her beak and played around in the nest for a bit before laying down for some rest. Early afternoon saw a large fish delivered by Mom. Dad came and made an attempt to share the fish but Mom rebuffed him and he made a hasty exit. Mom noshed for a bit waiting for the screamers to show up. Harmony finally does after yelling from the branch across the way and Mom lets her have what's left of the fish. Peace shows up to watch Harmony eat and scores the leftovers. They both left the nest with full crops. The rest of the day was flying lessons, squeeing sessions and short naps in the branches. As darkness fell they were flying pass-bys and cavorting about the tree.

On to the pics and vids of the day!

Well, Monday on the nest got the week started right. And I hope the rest of your week goes just as well. 

We’ll see you on the nest tomorrow.
