5:37 pm - from the rollback - Dusk and Dawn have been up and about since Jean left. I thought this one was cute of Dawn preening the inside of h/h wing and Dusk looking as if to say, let me she what is in there. Those beautiful feathers coming in.

And then Dusk nipped at Dawn's wing

5:37 pm - from the rollback - Dusk picking up the leftover wing....maybe from the duck, and checking to see if there's anything left to eat on it.

2018-06-01 21_02_15-Greenshot.jpg

6:13 pm - I am going to guess that this is Ma out on the evergreen tree. She does a wing and foot stretch
2018-06-01 21_14_35-Greenshot.jpg
2018-06-01 21_14_39-Greenshot.jpg
And keeps her left foot dangling for a bit to give it a break.

6:29 pm - Ma turns around on the branch so she is now facing the nest tree
2018-06-01 21_29_41-Greenshot.jpg
Ma didn't seem too comfortable on that branch so she flew over to the left side of the tree

6:37 pm - Ma didn't stay there long as she flew off behind the tree and down. Not sure if she was trying to catch something below or not.

6:52 pm - Ma remains on the Evergreen tree
2018-06-01 21_53_27-Greenshot.jpg
And Dusk (left) and Dawn (right) remain together on the nest looking right at Ma on the evergreen tree
2018-06-01 21_53_55-Greenshot.jpg
This is from the W Cam and Dawn would be on the left in this s'cap, with Dusk on the right

I am now off the cams. Everyone have a great night!

7:59pm........Thank you Sue! I am trying to see the rollback but it only seems to go back a few minutes......maybe the cams have been off again??
