Thanks everyone.   :)

Lano, that "GSB Phil" better hide and stay hidden.  After this long, hard winter, he is not going to win any popularity contests.   :P ::) ;) :D

Around 10:15am, Michelle left nest and I heard a prey exchange off camera. She flew to eat on the outcrop.
Camera operator found her hideaway. ♥

Lano, thanks for all the great pics and posts!  :)

Newman!  Awww...   He is one of pefa heroes... keeping those eggs protected in harsh conditions and looking after his girl, Michelle, too.  :-* :-*  This is a great pefa team!  I wish them continued health and success.   :) :-* :-*

My many thanks and admiration are all still going out to Bob Anderson and all of RRP (that's the RRP Board, staff, volunteers, contributors, followers, cheerleaders... all! ) for continuing Bob's legacy.  (((HUGS)))

Thanks, Lano.  And now Mama Michelle takes her turn.   :-* :-* :-*

I hope everyone in the path of the storms stays safe.  Take care, all.

Michelle takes over incubation. They have done a great job keeping the eggs protected.
10:00am, Newman comes in to relieve Michelle
