Lori, do you mean D12?

Anyone know what the prey, black-ish, medium-sized bird, was  a couple days ago? Crow?

It was an American Coot.  White beak, dark feathers and very distinctive greenish colored lobed feet.

Ginger, thanks for identifying the blackish bird prey as a coot. Moments ago, D12 got a helping of mostly dark feathers from the nestovers. That will make a pellet soon.

About 10 this morning, DNF (I think) brought in a large opossum (I'm pretty sure) big enough to make a nice fur pillow. At about 1:15 p.m., MrN (I think) removed it to the ground below the nest. The field cam caught some devouring shots.

This nest is SOOO interesting for the variety of prey.

I'm getting almost perfect in spotting DN12 on nest.  Anyone else?

I would have to take issue, though, with the characterization of DN11 as "weak."  There's no evidence of that that I know of.  We don't know why it died.
