Lady Hawk - Harriet & M wake up in the nest tree and then it is time to work on the nest! Harriet flies in with a pine sprig and finds the perfect place for it! The fresh pine will not only smell nice but it thought to have antimicrobial properties to help offset insects and keep the nest clean. ? We have some great closeups of Harriet as she is standing on the nest before she flies off! Yesterday, Harriet joins M on the outer attic and he flies over to her and attempts a mating! Poor M is out of practice and flies off unsuccessful ? No worries as they will mate many many times before Harriet enters her fertile period in November. M will fly in with a stick and then lie down testing out the nest once again! As he looks up - Harriet flies in with another pine sprig and almost lands on him! lol They do some aerating of the nesting material and then Harriet heads to the spike. She flies off and returns with a stick and M tries to take it from her but this is Harriet's stick and she is placing it! :) She moves it all around and puts it by the rails only to have M pick it up and move it! They both work on the stick together having some discussions along the way! Harriet will hop up to the veranda finally satisfied! Thank you for watching!
