Random pics from this afternoon.

The perches were perplexing until the cam ops provided the alternative view. First a hanging trapeze from nowhere, then a new angle showing it to be a snag above the nest.  Thanks cam ops!

Sometime today, DN14 got a dirty-white face, I think it's poo and not just a feather because it has been there all day.

Both DNs looking for a fish from the sky, like manna from heaven.   ;)

Exploration continues with the DN13 taking the early food drop from DNF to the ground below the nest. DN14 joined in.

DN13 spent some time relaxing on the Ladder Branch after the ground work.

Near 11:00, the DNs took the action to the creek, with both exploring the bank on the "near" side, then moving to the far side. Seems like no food was involved, but fishing will come soon, or capture of small prey on the ground.

Lisa and Tig, sharing food is not high on the DNs' list of skills!  Perching spots are more chummy.

STL - I agree with you on that....no one wants to share their meal at DNN!

Great pics from you and tig:)

Quiet afternoon for the Norths, unless I missed something on the rewind. DN14 has been exploring a bit.
