Dad the Builder

It’s the end of February 2014 and winter has not let go of its grip….

still freezing… but Dad has his duties and continues to build up the nest.  Mama always seems to be nearby, either at the Anthemion or on a tree by the Capitol.

It was around this time last year when Mama started sitting in the nest. But this year, Ol’ man winter doesn’t seem to want to let go and it’s been freezing so we might see Mama in the nest maybe middle of next week.

Don’t touch that dial…

Ciao!
