It started before the sun came up. But the sunrise was very pretty.

We had a Red Tailed Hawk come to rest on the Pasture Branch.

It was a very entertaining day today watching them.

Mrs brought 9 sticks, Mr brought 6...

Mrs brought 1 hay,  Mr brought 2 hay..

Mr and Mrs both brought a stick in their beak

Mr brought one in with one talon

One of them I didn't realize Mr could do it but he did..they both moved it together.

I watched as Mrs hung from a branch on the stream tree as she broke it off, flew to the right of the nest and had to rest a moment, at that point. It either got lodged or she lost it but decided to break another and brought it in.

As the Camera Operator was following Mrs with the stick Mr flew in with hay.

I really enjoy watching these two in their daily life, this truly is an amazing nest.  You can't see the work that goes into collecting the sticks and the process at other nests.

They fly into them to snap them off, they hang from them and flap until it breaks, or they find a good one and bounce on it until it lets go, it really is amazing to see.

I hope I haven't bored you.  I have some good shots to share.

They are both on the Love tree tonight in their designated spots, at around 8 pm nest time tonight Mrs was awakened to the hoot of a GHO.
Seems it is very vocal tonight. Maybe calling for a mate.

Have a good Night All hope you enjoyed todays pics.

KRD - thanks so very much for your amazing photos & descriptions of DNN Eagles daily feats & tallying the numerous visitors the Norths encounter! I'm amazed that Mr. North brought in that very long stick to the nest.
