Lady Hawk - M is flying in from the west pasture with some prey (rabbit) and both E's are following him and are hot on his tail. E17 is slightly ahead on the right and E18 is right behind him. M lands with the prey and E18 mantles and claims it- E17 missed the nest and had to circle around. E17 then comes flying in and goes after the prey. Wings are flying around and both are mantling. E17 gets a piece and quickly eats it but E18 has the prey so E17 flies off the nest. At 11:50 E17 returns for a steal attempt but it is blocked by E18. E17 flies off the porch as E18 is in mantle mode protecting the food. Twenty minutes later, E17 returns to the nest and looks for nestovers and finds a few to eat while E18 is finishing up on the meal. E18 heads to the veranda and feaks her beak and then to the attic. E17 will join E18 on the attic and we get to see the size of E18's crop! Wowza! That is huge! Both E's spend some time together on the attic. Thank you for watching!
