The first Sunday of the season was a fitting one on the nest. It mostly consisted of Dad having the duty on the egg while Mom stretched her wings and talons in preparation for what we hope is a second egg tomorrow. There were a few highlights though like a good stick bonk on Mom by Dad as he returned from Stick Depot, several choir practices where Mom and Dad warned away intruders, some of the resident deer wandering by at the usual time and several very loud crashes of ice as the day warmed up into the forties and the river started to break out of its icy winter shell. We even spotted some future meals for the eaglets swimming in the open water of the river. The mallards looked very happy to have a place to exercise their webbed feet on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
Ooops, wrong nest!!
Actually, that was an osprey nest we spotted on the way to Grand Teton National Park several years ago. Great use for a power pole don’t you think??
On to todays doin’s!
