1:38pm...........The adult that left the dock pole and has landed on the first tower.............seems to be eating. I guess he/she picked up some lunch after it flew off the dock pole and has brought it to this spot for eating.

2:09pm.........Along came Ma carrying a clump of grasses in her talons. She picked up the prey that was left in the nest, but didn't really eat it. Instead she seemed content to watch and wait.

2:31pm.......Just when I was ready to give up looking for him, Pa landed in the nest with a clump of "softness" for the bowl. He moved it around and tried out the bowl to see if it was good.
