She spent most of the morning on the perch... only leaving briefly from 9:02 am - 9:27 am,

until she saw something flying in the distance around 11:57 am. She vocalized an "Alarm/Alert" call and flew out after whatever it was that got to close for her comfort, heading in a southern direction along the river.

I've been checking the cam on and off this evening... Harriet has not returned before dark. I have a feeling she has sought out some shelter after having sat thru last night's winter weather.

Before I go further with today I thought I would mention that another Osprey did make a visit while Harriet was on her perch yesterday afternoon, she jumped down to the nest - mantled her nest - flapped her wings slightly - and vocalized ( but not loudly ) while this other Osprey flew over her nest area. ( not really sure if it's an Intruder or not but it didn't stick around and I don't think it was Hal ) Last season there was a Male ( not Hal ) that she spent some time with that arrived on the 10th, Hal arrived on the 13th.

She's back with her Hay... :mihihi:

I really do think that Harriet and Hal just wait for the Ranch hands to put out the Hay for the horses so as they can gather it up for nesting material. I've seen them do it so many times over the past seasons.

At 8:39 am she arrives with a very large branch. She has a bit of trouble placing it and ends up leaving it hanging over the edge area on the left side of the nest. ( She messes with it for about 10 minutes )

Another load of nesting material arrives, looks a bit damp this time which doesn't surprise me considering the weather at the moment.

I watched while I was running around getting things going on my own nest.. Harriet was busy, busy, busy bringing in more lumber. At one point I'm sure I heard Osprey Sky Dancing vocals while she was off getting herself another branch. Nothing seemed to come out of it though. That was around 11:35 am.
