Harriet and M15 exchange vocals and greet the sunrise. They survey the area and begin their work by adding materials and sticks to prepare the nest. Harriet and M15 reestablish their bond by perching and roosting together and engaging in mating behaviors. They spend the early mornings and the evenings together and fly off in the warm afternoons to a shady perch place.
Harriet and M15 progress through the Seasons in predictable ways with a few twists to keep it interesting. M15 usually delivers food gifts to Harriet as a sign of his devotion. So far, Harriet has been the bearer of most of the food to the nest. She may have needed to remind M15 that he is the primary provider. Many times he has followed Harriet’s prompts. He must have got the message and delivered a meal to the nest, which she gladly accepted.
Harriet and M15 enter their 6th Season together with a sharp focus on their goal of adding to their legacy. In the past, Harriet laid eggs toward the middle to the end of November. As each year unfolds differently, the events happen when the timing is right. For now, they work as a determined and accomplished team well into the swing of all things that will result in success.
