SWFL Eagles ~ Harriet Brings In A Mourning Dove! M Nuzzles H's Wing For A Shift Change ? 11.22.21

Lady Hawk - Warning: Viewer discretion advised. Harriet catches & brings to the nest a live mourning dove. Harriet gets up from incubating her egg and flies off the nest & returns in 2.5 minutes with a mourning dove she just caught. She immediately begins to de-feather it and makes quick work with eating it - leaving only soft feathers to help line her nest. She then resumes incubation of the egg and gets up to roll it at 8:30. ?? M flies in at 10:07 and he has one thing on his mind....incubation time! ? He goes up to Harriet and gently nuzzles her wing and she replies with soft vocals. She gets up for a shift change & flies to the pond and lets M have his time on the egg. Harriet returns at dusk and they exchange vocals and M will head to the outer branch while Harriet rolls the egg and settles in for the evening. We will be watching Harriet's behavior tomorrow for signs of her laying egg #2! Thank you for watching!
