I remember that night so well, T40. It was so beautiful and magical! I saved it way back then. Appreciate you sharing it tonight.
Great to see Mom and DM2 on the nest today!

Lisa, great pics of Mom and DM2 late this afternoon. It was like musical chairs the way they kept trading places, not really sharing. That large item that Mom brought looked old and tough, maybe a catfish carcass. As Christmas Eve dinner, it left a lot to be desired!

Thanks to the cam ops for staying on the job after the lights went out on a holiday.  Merry Christmas to all for tomorrow.

Thanks so much for the pix, Lisa & STL!

A very merry Christmas to all!  On this Christmas Eve, not a creature was stirring not even a mouse, oops - except a merry mouse maid at N2B  :D 

Last night the merry mice maids were scrambling all over, really enjoying the gift of downy rabbit fur left for them.

Then, Mom flew from the West, and landed on the side of the retention pond till a car that stopped made her fly off.  She flew to the nest, and a few minutes later DM2 flies in with a stick. Mom flew to the left, and DM2 to the right when they left N2B.

Wonderful, Lisa, to catch Mom and DM2 at N2B with a stick!  Hope, hope, hope for more sticks.   :D
