About the food MrN brought this morning -- it was red meat, very tattered and easy to pull apart, possibly roadkill, but no ID.

Love that pic of the ermine!  They are really tiny and fast.  Great to know they live in that area.  Thanks cam ops!

Here's an opossum, under the nest area, about 1:30 this afternoon.

Right after that, MrN landed on a Love Branch (tree on the north side of the nest, where they like to spend the night).  He did some calling and preening, and stayed there for several hours.  About 4:00 he made a short stop at the nest and Ladder Branch before flying away towards the south.

Beautiful views of the moon rising over the North's valley tonight.

Howling at the north nest.   Could be the night of the eclipse - but I mentioned it before.  Shows up at sundown.

There was a 'cold moon' eclipse last night. Which looks different and was the last of 2022.
Nature notices everything  ;)
And is sensitive to the Moon.

Love the pics this morning, Phyl.  I knew about the full moon but didn't realize there was an eclipse also!  Coyotes apparently howl at the full moons.

DNF has been industriously bringing long sticks to the nest all morning.  I got pics of 3 different ones.  Could be more on the rewind.

Cam ops got a good view of some locations on the far side of the creek about noon.  Pic has labels.  There's an updated map and several pics you can print from the live stream page, link in the title area at the top of the live feed.

Phyl, you're welcome for the tree label pics.  Those at the live stream link are better and way more detailed.

Surprised to see the snow today when I tuned in at noon!  That BE perching at the creek trees could be MrN with a dirty face or a sub-adult that hasn't been here before.  The folks at Explore will be able to tell which.

After noon, the view switched to the brushy trees just south of the nest.  I think that's DNF from brief glimpses of the back of her head. The  body feathers are in multi-shades of brown, like might be time for some serious molting of the lightest colored ones.

Hi!
These are great.
Sometimes I get a 'jerky' hand with the Raynaurd's  and arthritis. That will make the details blurry. In ths case the face.  :(

Phyl, sorry to learn you have difficulties with hand movements.  The cam ops have to focus the views, too.  Sometimes wait a few seconds and the picture clears.

Late afternoon on this snowy day, a sub-adult perched in the pine trees south of the nest, not sure which side of the pasture in this pic.

MrN and DNF perched in the Scary Tree at the end of day.  There was twittering that sometimes signals mating, but no action on camera today!
