Quite a bit of rain swept thru the Raleigh area over the weekend and into monday. A quick check of the nest finds all present and accounted for. Eden, Sally and Hillary are still in the nest. Where’s Mama and Papa? They stop by to drop off food, but doesn’t seem to be guarding them as judiciously as they did 2 weeks back. Of course. These eyasses can now pass as Hawks!
All three are a curious bunch, looking and turning their heads at anything that moves or is in the air including their own feathers 🙂
There’s quite a bit more wing activity which says they’re almost ready to fledge.
This eyas actually lifted an inch or two above the nest!
It Won’t Be Long Now!
