Wakati moves an old piece of bark and places it to the side of the nest.

There's a switch at the perch, Wakati leaves, Congo then goes to the perch and Wakati returns to the nest.

Wakati has been quietly resting, she eventually gets up and does a bit of preening.

Wakati eventually heads up to the perch before she leaves the nest area.

Tuesday September 4th, 2018

Congo's last morning .. It is believed that somewhere in between 10 am and 1 pm, Congo began her Migration. She is 94 days old
( 3 month's/2days ) God Speed Congo... may the winds be in your favor and may you find lots of fish along the way.

Harriet delivered 4 fish to the nest today and Hal delivered 2. Wakati and Congo spent most of the morning in the nest area together. My last s'cap of the two of them together was at 10:02 am. They spent the night together on the perch. Congo is on the left.. Wakati on the right.

UPDATE !! This is also the last day that Harriet is seen on the cams. Till next season Harriet - Fly safe... may your travels also be filled with lots of fresh fish along the way !!

Wednesday September 5th / Thursday September 6th ... 2018

Harriet is not seen on either of these 2 days so it is believed that she has also started her migration south.

Hal makes fish deliveries to Wakati on both days.. Wakati is spending the night's on the perch and hanging around the nest for the majority of the time on both days. I think she did make at least one attempt to fish on her own on the 6th.

While waiting for a fish delivery, Wakati found an old piece of fish laying on the nest which she ate to curb her hunger.
