Is This An Eye-Opener?

Last modified date

This video from earlier this evening around 7:00 shows Mom leaving the nest for just a few minutes. She returns without prey, but she might have fed while away from the nest on something that she could swallow whole, such as a songbird or small mammal. While she was gone we got a good look at the two chicks. The older one turns one week today. Mom gave us our first glimpse of it almost exactly 7 days ago. It’s a nice night but 4 days from now the wind chill’s going to be in single digits Sunday morning. Mom and chicks have to keep up their energy to stay warm. And the chicks have a lot of growing to do!
