SWFL Eagles ~ Monday Stickfest! Huge Super Sized Sticks Make Great Guard Rails For Eaglets! 10.18.21

Lady Hawk - Harriet and M worked hard on the nest this morning with M bringing in 5 sticks and Harriet bringing in 6 sticks (including a huge stick) and a pine bough! (They also brought in more sticks later in the morning) What a great team they make from dawn to dusk ?? They start the morning with bonding ~ M wastes NO time and pounces on Harriet as soon as she flies up to the outer attic! lol Then M is off on his stick mission and delivers the next three sticks while Harriet enjoys the sunrise! Then it is her turn and she flies off and returns with five sticks in about 35 minutes time! Great job Harriet!! M gets back in the game and brings in another stick and Harriet matches it with some fresh pine. M flies off and returns with his fifth stick of the morning and Harriet is right behind him and brings in a super sized long stick and drags it over M's body at 27:06!! M quickly moves it to the side of the nest and & then to the left - Harriet helps him but M is not finished! He moves it part way up the veranda branch! It is almost like a mini ladder! These large sticks will make excellent guard rails to help protect the eaglets from falling out of the nest. Great job Harriet and M ? Thank you for watching!
