Hi Jean, Sandy, Joan, Rose, Philippe, and All Delta Viewers! I just had to share this short clip of Trooper today (12:59 pm). He was doing such a great job of bringing in sticks and branches, but poor Trooper lost one of the biggest sticks I have seen him bring to the nest. I felt so bad for him watching this.

:vid: Trooper loses large stick

Sue, thanks for the video! That was a good sized stick..........poor Trooper. The ground below must be littered with several by now! :mrgreen:
