Harriet Chases A Hawk ~ M15 Delivers Fish & Sticks 11-12-19

You would never have known Harriet was going to lay an egg just before 5 PM today as we watched her chase a hawk to try and get their prey. M15 also was busy adding more sticks and delivering a nice headless fish for Harriet's breakfast. Cameo appearance by a Northern Flicker looking for their own breakfast in one of the snags.

First eggie day! So very EggCiting! Harriet surprised us all with the earliest date ever.

Thanks to all for the great s'caps of food deliveries, stick deliveries, and of course the first egg. Chris Reid - I love the sunbeams on the nest and our power couple.

Congrats to H & M!

Thank you to the Pritchetts for bringing us the viewing of this miracle.
